WASHINGTON (AP) Even though Wayne Rooney wasn't in from the start, the English national team's all-time leading scorer was instrumental in finishing things off in D.C. United's first true home game of the season.

Rooney made his Major League Soccer debut Saturday as a second-half substitute and assisted on the third goal in D.C. United's 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps in the first game played at Audi Field.

"Once Wayne came on I thought things really changed for the better," D.C. United coach Ben Olsen said.
