Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney scored his first goal for DC United and also broke his nose in a 2-1 home win over Colorado Rapids in the MLS.

 

The 32-year-old scored the opener when he sent a shot through former team-mate Tim Howard‘s legs.

 

Kellyn Acosta equalised before Howard twice denied DC captain Rooney.

 

A Niki Jackson own goal in the 90th minute gave DC United the win before Rooney broke his nose while defending in stoppage time.

 

After the game he tweeted: “Delighted to score my first gaol for @dcunited last night and more importantly a big 3 points at @AudiField #DCU ⚫🔴”
