Wayne Rooney opens up about his unwanted exit from Everton

Rooney then explained that after giving much thought and assessing all his options, he finally decided that DC United was the best place for him to come and showcase his talents. While the former England global didn't get on the score sheet - his 79th minute header was well saved by Vancouver goalkeeper Brian Rowe - his affect on United's build-up play was notable.

"We were very sharp in the second half, especially when Wayne came on", Olsen said.

He's undoubtedly DC United's biggest ever signing and the fans were chanting: "We want Rooney!"

Former Manchester United star Rooney helped set up Paul Arriola's goals in the 69th and 80th minutes after Argentine midfielder Yamil Asad provided United the lead for good in the 27th minute. "I'm enjoying it", Rooney said.

"I've made a few debuts over my career and today was no different than the other ones", Rooney said before giving a detailed account of his pregame activities. "I felt I was doing OK, I was top goal scorer [despite] playing most of the season from midfield".

Rooney fired a unsafe header just inside the left post in the 79th minute that was fisted away by Rowe. "And they told me, and I said, 'Fair enough.' I'm not going to disrespect the football club".

Rooney, who netted a record 53 goals for England, won five Premier League crowns and a 2008 Champions League final with Manchester United, scoring a team-record 253 goals.

Arriola struck again from 25 yards after receiving a pass from Rooney as DC claimed just their third win of the MLS season, despite Alphonso Davies' late consolation goal for the Whitecaps.

"It's a great stadium", Rooney told the Washington Post.

"So I think a little bit more faith in young English players will help the national team".

"I want to win", Rooney said.

The Whitecaps looked lost, chasing the ball, and failing to keep possession when they did get it, and generally looking listless and uninspired.
