The Latest In Sports New With Soccer

DC United have gone from bottom of the soccer league to a comfortable play-off spot. This remarkable turn of form has been down to the signing of English superstar Wayne Rooney in July.

The former England captain scored yet another special goal for the Washington side as they beat Toronto. Rooney rolled back the years from his Manchester United days as he struck the ball from 35 yards out with such pace that the Toronto goalkeeper couldn’t get near it.

The goal turned out to be the deciding game in the match and meant that the side won their tenth match out of 17 since Rooney arrived in the capital.

Soccer stars in the MLS have been praising the impact that Rooney has made since arriving in the league. Former team mate and Chicago Fire midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger said: “He has had a huge impact for DC. I think also it helped them a lot to play in a new stadium. They made some changes as well. They really play well, I like watching them a lot and hope it is a good game for us. He is a great player.”

James Corden also Tweeted about the response that Rooney has received since arriving in America. He said: “Unreal from Wayne Rooney, no one can underestimate the impact he is having out here.”

The Englishman will be hoping their good form continues and that he can get his hands on some more silverware by winning the MLS Play-offs.
