With Wayne Rooney having announced last week that he'll leave D.C. United at season's end to return to his native land to join Derby County as a player/coach, let's revisit one of his greatest moments in MLS, which transpired exactly one year ago today.
With D.C. even at 2-2 with Orlando City SC amid their furious climb up the Eastern Conference standings in the second half of the 2018 season, head coach Ben Olsen brought his goalkeeper David Ousted up for a corner kick in the dying moments of the match. His team was looking to capture all three points at their Audi Field home; anything less and United's playoff hopes would take a major hit.
What transpired over the next few moments could simply be as described as one of the greatest plays in MLS history. Re-live "The Tackle" with Rooney, Ousted, Olsen, and Luciano Acosta.
