A moment of magic from Wayne Rooney fired DC United to a late 3-2 victory over Orlando in Major League Soccer on Sunday.

The two sides had appeared to be heading for a 2-2 draw as Orlando broke out following a United corner in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

But a superb last-ditch tackle from Rooney upended Orlando’s Will Johnson, and the former Manchester United star then launched a long ball into the area met by Luciano Acosta, who nodded home the winner.

The 32-year-old, England and Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer, confirmed his move to MLS in June after a season with Everton in the Premier League.

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo says he will be discharged from hospital in Ibiza on Monday following reports that he was in intensive care with pneumonia.

Newspaper Diario De Ibiza reported that the 41-year-old, who retired in 2011, was taken to the island’s Can Misses hospital on Friday evening and diagnosed with pneumonia.

However, Ronaldo on Sunday wrote on Twitter that he had had “strong flu” and that now “it’s all in order”.

He added: “I get the discharge tomorrow and come back home. Thank you all for your love and your messages!”

Ronaldo, whose club career took in spells at Cruzeiro, PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Corinthians, is on holiday in Ibiza, where he owns a house.

The striker’s career ended seven years ago when he hung up his boots up after two years with Corinthians.

Ronaldo scored 62 goals in 98 appearances for Brazil, including both in the World Cup final in 2002 against Germany, and is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest players.
