Rooney on his way to becoming MLS' new free-kick king
After scoring another free-kick in the game against Columbus Crew, D.C. United captain Wayne Rooney is on his way to becoming an MLS legend.
The D.C. United captain netted another free-kick in Wednesday's match against Columbus Crew - his fourth set-piece strike in his 28 MLS games since arriving in the States last July. In that time, no one else has scored more than one free-kick.
Rooney scored one of the most spectacular efforts so far this season in the game against Orlando City on 31 March, an impressive near-Olympic goal.
If the English striker keeps up this pace, he could demolish the record for the most free-kicks scored in MLS history, which is currently held by former Toronto FC star, Italian Sebastian Giovinco.

Meanwhile, Rooney has four free-kick goals out of 14 shots taken, leaving him with a success rate of 17%, making him the most dangerous set-piece expert in the league.
