Cape Town - Wayne Rooney rolled back the years to produce an amazing passage of play in the dying minutes to hand DC United a dramatic 3-2 win over Orlando City.

Luciano Acosta struck a hat-trick as DC United grabbed a late win after the former England international's heroics in a sensational passage of play in the dying seconds.

With the goalkeeper in the opponents half after an attacking corner - Rooney ran back 70 yards to chase down an opponent with the goal at his mercy and put in a goal saving challenge.

After winning back possession Rooney carried the ball back into the attacking third and hit a pin-point diagonal pass to set up Acosta for the winning goal in stoppage-time.

Have a look at the amazing passage of play below:
