Wayne Rooney scored his 11th goal of the MLS season as DC United strolled to a 4-1 victory at FC Cincinnati which moved them back to the top of the Eastern Conference.
Leo Jara’s inch-perfect pass to the former Manchester United man was almost as impressive as Rooney’s 64th-minute finish at Nippert Stadium.
Lucas Rodriguez joined Rooney on the scoresheet with two goals, and Paul Arriola got a fourth for the away side in the 73rd minute.
Emmanuel Ledesma briefly levelled for the hosts in the 54th minute with a penalty after an Arriola handball.
In the night’s other game, Portland Timbers and Orlando City drew 1-1 at Providence Park, with the home side leaving it late to snatch a draw.
Orlando took the lead a minute before half-time after a mistake by Zarek Valentin led to Santiago Patino scoring.
A point was salvaged in the 83rd minute, though, when Jeremy Ebobisse scored with a header, to the delight of the home fans.
