Wayne Rooney Scores His First MLS Hat-Trick And It's Like Being In 2009

Wayne Rooney Scores His First MLS Hat-Trick And It's Like Being In 2009

DC United are officially top of the Eastern Conference thanks to a certain 33-year-old striker, who managed to score his first MLS hat-trick in a 5-0 drubbing, last night.

Wayne Rooney, who was made captain against Real Salt Lake, has turned the club's fortunes around after joining in June last year.

DC were rock bottom of the league when he first arrived on the scene, but things are now looking promising three games into the new 2019/20 campaign, with the former Manchester United and Everton forward looking sharp.

We can confirm Wayne Rooney has still got it.

Check out some of these delightful finishes, especially the second:

The impact Rooney has made at DC United is nothing short of remarkable. Even when he's not scoring goals, the man himself is providing pin point crosses like this:

Back in October 2016, he didn't create a single chance from open play against Watford and many proceeded to cast doubts over his future in the game.

There was no doubt that he played a key role in United's success in years gone by, but his stature at Old Trafford was like a piece of glass - a solid exterior but people could see through his flaws.

How things have changed.

Two years on from that match at Vicarage Road, some labelled Rooney's move to the MLS as the end of a trophy-laden career when he joined bottom of the league DC United.

The 33-year-old is flying in the MLS and we couldn't be happier for the guy.

Oh and we still love his slightly awkward post-match interviews.


New season, same Wayne Rooney.
