DC United's Wayne Rooney sent off early in Atlantic Cup clash

Wayne Rooney took an early shower in the Atlantic Cup. 

The legend was sent off in the 24th minute after elbowing New York Red Bulls' Cristian Casseres Jr. on a corner kick. The collision appeared to be a coming together during the run of play, but following Video Review referee Ismael Elfath ruled it was enough for a red card upon further review. 

The Red Bulls had already gotten off to a 1-0 lead at Audi Field before Rooney was ejected. It's Rooney's second red card of his MLS career, both this season.
