Liverpool then drew Porto, the Reds faithful certainly counting their blessings after a difficult draw against Bayern Munich.

The Spurs have Manchester City, which means Manchester United is tied with Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

Wayne Rooney signed the first hodgepodge of his career in the Major League football, while D.C. United beat Real Salt Lake (10-man) 5-0 at Audi Field.

Rooney scored a brace in the first half and sealed the deal in the 65th minute, setting the pace for D.C. United's defense in the first three games of the season. The English international scored his first goals of the season 2019 categorically. He exploded in the 34th minute to allow his team to come out of the stalemate with a fabulous goal lost after a bad defensive turn.

Rooney then doubled his total and the lead after Damir Kreilach conceded the penalty with a foul on Lucas Rodriguez confirmed by VAR.

RSL fell on a man when Jefferson Savarino received a flawless red card early in the first half for a dangerous boot that surprised Luciano Acosta's box. They lost another when Marcelo Silva saw a second yellow in the 67th minute.

Finally, as the 33-year-old thought he was taking control of the game, the hat trick came as Rooney received a disinterested feedback from Junior Moreno in a two-man situation and he could not miss with a big one. smile. on his face while he was celebrating the hugs of his teammates.

D.C. United started the season with two wins and one draw in his first three games, tied for the top of the Eastern Conference alongside Columbus Crew with seven points. The defense has been the real star of the series so far, having yet to concede the goal of the 270 minutes league.

The New York Red Bulls finally won the No. 1 win of the MLS season after defeating San Jose 4-1.

Still in their second league game of the season because of the CONCACAF Champions League, the Red Bulls led 1-0 thanks to a very early score from Christian Espinoza, but they rallied to a second half monster to win the three points.

Alex Muyl started the second period just six minutes after the break, after Bradley Wright-Phillips shot a shot away from Daniel Vega, but the rebound fell on Daniel Royer at the bottom line that scored the goal for Muyl. There was 20 minutes remaining at the end of the match for Red Bulls. After Royer's sustained effort on the right, his deviated center fell to the far post that Muyl was waiting for.

Wright-Phillips put the game at the bottom in the 85th minute. The center near Sean Davis was hit at the far post. Royer scored a goal four minutes later by scoring two goals from Michael Murillo's center. The win brought RBNY back to four points in the very young season, with Columbus leading the Eastern Conference on seven.

Also noteworthy is that 18-year-old Danish international junior Mathias Jorgensen made his MLS debut in the 86th minute after BWP had taken over. Jorgensen was acquired this winter from the leading Danish club OB.

Jordan Morris missed all of last season due to a tear in the ACL, and his international career also seemed tainted by the injury. Today, he said he was coming back with revenge.

The 24-year-old was a force since he scored one goal and helped another in a 4-2 win on the road against Chicago.

It was his center of the game, Victor Rodriguez, who opened the scoring and Nicolas Lodeiro delivered the perfect ball to face Morris's run in the chain as Seattle doubled his lead in 20 minutes. Morris' goal will give even more hope to USMNT, which has timed its race and completed the finish, despite intense contact from the defender, making the situation very difficult.

While Morris fainted after the first 20 minutes, he was finally released, but his start to the match is promising as the USMNT will meet next week for the international break. Morris now has three goals and one assist to start the Major League Soccer season, a fabulous start on the way home from injury. His quick campaign start also gives Seattle its best start to the year with three consecutive games in the jump gap, equalizing 2009 for a club record.

USMNT fans will want to see more of this 24-year-old player, but a fit and fit Jordan is a considerable asset to the national team who is always looking for consistent performances in advance .
