Wayne Rooney‘s time in MLS ended on a low as DC United were crushed 5-1 after extra time of their play-off clash against Toronto.

The 33-year-old former Manchester United and England forward, who is joining Championship side Derby as a player-coach in January, sent over the stoppage-time corner from which Lucas Rodriguez turned in a dramatic equaliser.

But Rooney will not have fond memories of his last game in the US, with Jonathan Osorio’s brace adding to Richie Laryea’s 93rd-minute effort and Nick DeLeon sealing the win with a stunning curling shot in time added on at the end of the first period of extra time.

Reigning champions Atlanta progressed with a 1-0 win over New England Revolution, with Franco Escobar scoring the only goal of the game with 20 minutes remaining.

United States international Jordan Morris scored a hat-trick to help Seattle Sounders to a thrilling 4-3 extra-time victory over FC Dallas.

The home side were 2-0 up after 22 minutes, only for New England to pull level with goals from Reggie Cannon and Matt Hedges.

Morris’ second of the game from close range put Seattle back in front, but Bryan Acosta’s 82nd-minute header forced extra time.

Another header at the end of a scruffy passage of play in the 113th minute secured Morris his hat-trick and Sounders a place in the next round.

Jefferson Savarino’s late strike snatched Real Salt Lake a 2-1 win over Portland Timbers after Dairon Asprilla had cancelled out Damir Kreilach’s opener for the hosts.
