Toronto FC stands in the way of Wayne Rooney’s biggest MLS goal

It was back in August that Wayne Rooney announced his time in Major League Soccer would be coming to a premature end, with plans to return to his native England after this season — and Toronto FC could be his final opponent.

Rooney’s D.C. United visit BMO Field on Saturday to open the post-season in the first of four one-and-done rounds on the revamped road to the MLS Cup. The 33-year-old Rooney signed a 31/2 year deal after leaving Everton of the English Premier League in the summer of 2018, but will head for second-tier Derby County as a player/coach in January, less than a year and a half after the move overseas.
