Wayne Rooney has been excellent since coming to D.C. United and MLS. More

With 96 minutes on the clock, Orlando looked set to snatch all three points at Audi Field when they launched a counter attack with DC goalkeeper David Ousted pushed forward for a corner leaving an unguarded net.

Yes, that's Rooney tracking back hard to make a goal-saving tackle with the score tied 2-2, as D.C. United's keeper had gone forward to press for a victor off a corner and was caught up the pitch.

The return of the Premier League may have dominated the footballing sphere over the weekend but one of the division's former icons made sure his name was in the headlines following an incredible assist for DC United in a last-gasp win over Orlando City.

Asked if Kelly will start to get second-team snaps in practice, Vance Joseph said : "We'll see". The Broncos were outgained 269-61 in the first half of a loss to the Vikings on Saturday night.

United remain rooted to the foot of the standings however with 21 points from 20 games.

Rooney, England and Manchester United's all-time record goalscorer, confirmed his move to MLS in June after a season with Everton in the Premier League.

Still, nobody was talking about Acosta after the goal - it was all about the determination and quality shown by Rooney.
