USA: Former England striker Wayne Rooney scored his first goal for DC United and also broke his nose in a 2-1 home win over Colorado Rapids in the MLS.

The 32-year-old scored the opener when he sent a shot through ex-Manchester United team-mate Tim Howard’s legs.

Kellyn Acosta equalised before Howard twice denied DC captain Rooney.

A Niki Jackson own goal in the 90th minute gave DC United the win before Rooney broke his nose while defending in stoppage time.

He later tweeted he was “delighted to score my first goal for DC United”, adding that he had acquired “a broken nose and five stitches”.
