Wayne Rooney converts ridiculous free-kick marking 10th MLS goal

When England's all-time goalscorer signed on with D.C. United in June, the soccer community in the nation's capital was ignited. 

Shortly after the excitement came the questions. How much does he have left in the tank? Can he actually carry a struggling D.C. United squad? Is he up for the task? 

Wayne Rooney has responded. 

Through 18 MLS matches, the 32-year-old now has 10 goals. 

In the first half of Wednesday night's game against Toronto FC, Rooney broke a scoreless tie with this free-kick strike. 

DC United currently sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, on 44 points.

Wayne Rooney is already a D.C. United hero with incredible, last-second play

Wayne Rooney has only been in Washington, D.C. for a few weeks, but he keeps giving fans a reason to love him. 

The 32-year-old former Manchester United star produced a stunningly jaw-dropping sequence for D.C. United on Sunday against Orlando City, and it left soccer fans everywhere in awe.

With the score tied at 2-2, six minutes of extra time were added to the clock, Rooney came up big with a spectacular sequence.

Rooney comes out of nowhere. Look at that tackle!

This is the kind of  sequence you have to watch a couple times because it's truly unbelievable.
