Wayne Rooney makes full debut for DC United

Wayne Rooney will make his full debut for DC United in Saturday's MLS clash with Atlanta United.

Wayne Rooney will make his full debut for DC United in Saturday's MLS clash with Atlanta United.

Manchester United and England's record goalscorer completed a move to DC United at the end of last month, and made his debut for the MLS outfit as a substitute in last weekend's 3-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps.

Rooney has been named in his new team's starting XI for their clash with division leaders Atlanta, however, leading the line in a 4-1-4-1 formation for the Washington club.

DC United are currently bottom of the Eastern Conference having won just three of their 15 league matches this season, although they have four games in hand over 10th-placed Toronto.
