Wayne Rooney Scores 92nd Minute Penalty For DC United And Beers Fly Everywhere
Wayne Rooney has done it again. The 33-year-old salvaged a point for DC United when he netted a last minute penalty on Saturday night.
Time and time again, the former Manchester United striker has provided the goods in Major League Soccer.
And this spot kick against Toronto FC at the weekend was another one of those crucial moments.
Seconds after converting, thousands in the Audi Field stadium celebrated the equaliser by throwing their beers in the air.
Rooney wheeled away in celebration as his team sit just a point behind top of the table Philadelphia.
The 33-year-old has scored four goals in his last six games, but this goal might be one of his most important yet as DC continue to defy the odds and challenge for the MLS crown.
Rooney has netted 10 times this season and continues to be vital cog in Ben Olsen's side.
Earlier this week, he spoke about how much he's enjoying playing for DC United at the moment.

He also admitted that he's received a number of managerial offers from the US and England:
"There's already offers which have been made, but at the minute I'm still a player," he told Sky Sports.
"I want to enjoy playing, then I'll see which offers are right when I do finish.
"There's an opportunity for me to go into management straight away, and when I do hang my boots up, that decision will be made on what the ambition of the club is, what my ambitions are and what's right for both myself and that team."
Rooney also revealed that his aim is to complete his coaching badges while he's still in the US:
"It's great for myself, who wants to go into management, to see these lads getting opportunities and it gives you hope that it will happen to you," he explained.
Do you think Rooney would become a good manager in years to come?
