Wayne Rooney has experienced a bittersweet weekend by opening his account for DC United but also breaking his nose in a 2-1 home win over Colorado Rapids in the MLS.
The 32-year-old scored the opener on 33 minutes by slotting the ball through the legs of former Manchester United teammate Tim Howard.
The former England captain missed out on a perfect day, however, when he suffered a broken nose while carrying out defensive duties in stoppage time.
Tweeting after the game, Rooney said: "Delighted to score my first goal for DC United last night and more importantly a big three points at the Audi Field... and a broken nose and five stitches."
DC United remain bottom of the Eastern Conference in the MLS despite ending a run of two consecutive defeats.
