Just 10 minutes into the contest, Rooney picked up a pass from teammate Russell Canouse before kicking the ball from 10 yards inside the midfield.

Orlando goalkeeper Brian Rowe had to pay the price for being a little too ahead as the lofted kick from went over him and stunningly into the net.

No wonder, his teammates were quick to run across and embrace the man of the moment.

This is not the first time Rooney has scored in this manner though, having done the same for Manchester United in 2014 and for Everton in 2017.

As for Orlando, this was their eighth defeat in 16 games and are currently placed ninth in the standings.
