Wayne Rooney scores from halfway line for THIRD time in career
WAYNE ROONEY is at it again - making it an incredible hat-trick of goals from near his own half.
In DC United's clash with Orlando Pride, the England great lobbed stranded keeper Brian Rowe despite being 10 yards from the halfway line.
And his stunning long-range strike was enough to earn a 1-0 win over former team-mate Nani's side.
Rooney, 33, has now scored from the halfway line for every club he has played for in a trophy-laded career.
In 2017, the Everton legend picked up Joe Hart's clearance and sent it straight back over his international team-mate as he bagged a hat-trick against West Ham.
And three years earlier, with trendsetter David Beckham in attendance, Rooney volleyed from just the other side of the paint for Manchester United as they beat the unlucky Hammers.
The East Londoners wee on the receiving end of the gifted striker's vision two times as modest Roo later described his goal as "nice".
After last night's heroics, one United fan tweeted: "We should have kept ROONEY instead of bringing in zlatan #GlazersOut".
While another simply commented: "Puskas goal."
One Rooney fanatic added: "And they said his career was dead a few years ago. He proved then wrong."
DC United's win leaves them third in the MLS' Eastern Conference - two points behind table-topping Philadelphia Union.
to be sincere zlatan is better than rooney
