That wasn't the end Wayne Rooney or D.C. United hoped for.
Following a 5-1 extra time loss to Toronto FC in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, Rooney's Major League Soccer adventure is officially over. Rooney is leaving for Derby County of the English Championship for the next phase of his career. His final act in MLS involved coming off after the first period of extra time in a game that took a very ugly turn for his team through the first 15 minutes of bonus soccer.
Jonathan Osorio scored two of Toronto FC's four goals in the first half of extra time, as the hosts recorded a 5-1 victory over D.C. United in an Eastern Conference opening-round playoff match on Saturday.
Richie Laryea and former D.C. United player Nick DeLeon also tallied in extra time to help fourth-seeded Toronto FC rebound after Lucas Rodriguez forged a tie off a set piece in second-half stoppage time.
