Wayne Rooney Didn't Have The Best Time On His First MLS Start

Wayne Rooney Didn't Have The Best Time On His First MLS Start

Acclimatising to a new culture can be very difficult to do. For Wayne Rooney there's driving on the other side of the road, trying to work out why gravy goes with biscuits and learning exactly what 'soccer' is.

There comes a time in every footballer's life were he has a choice of retiring, making a hell of a lot of money in China or making less money in America but actually being able to order a pizza in the language you know.

Wayne Rooney was never likely to be the kind of guy who went for the Far East option and, at still just 32, he wasn't likely to retire just yet. That made the MLS his only real option.

After spending just a year back at Everton the former England captain decided to pack up all his stuff and head off for a great adventure across 'the pond' landing at DC United, not exactly the most glamorous of MLS clubs.

Last week Wazza made his MLS debut off the bench and provided an assist as DC beat Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1. Last night he made his first start against Atlanta United and DC lost by the same score.

It wasn't a good night for Manchester United's all time top scorer as he gave away the ball in the lead up to one of the goals, had some other bad moments and was taken off just past the hour mark:

It's not an ideal way to start life with your new club but it is worth remembering that he's not played any football since the end of Everton's season in May whilst DC are 16 games into their season.

The side from the capital are currently bottom of the Eastern Conference with just 14 points from 16 games but they do have at least four games in hand over the teams above them.

Once Rooney figures out the biscuit conundrum he'll hopefully get back to better form.
