Rooney was confident of DC United's victory against Orlando

DC United was able to reach three points with a goal in the last minute.


DC United

boss Wayne Rooney claims he is confident his side will take the three points after a dramatic win over

Orlando City

in his first appearance on the bench.

The former captain of

Manchester United

has recently been selected as the head coach of DC United. He played in this team for a while and has some interesting highlights especially against Orlando City. He scored 5 goals in 3 matches with this team and in 2018, he sent his exceptional goal assist from the inside half to his teammate. After the game, England's all-time leading scorer praised the performance of his players and claimed that he had told them they would win the game.

He said:

"I told them they'd win the game. I believed we'd win the game.

"But the one thing we had to do was up the tempo. We were moving the ball across the back and with the goalkeeper side to side, and it was too slow. We were allowing Orlando to shift across and not really making them run as hard as we wanted them to.

"That was the big difference second half, the tempo with which we moved the ball and really made Orlando suffer and work and run.

"When a team's doing that, then gaps appear. We have to take advantage of those gaps, and we did."
