Wayne Rooney’s Brother Scores In MLS Combine: Video

John Rooney, the younger brother of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, has been in South Florida this past weekend plying his skills in the 2011 MLS Combine where he scored a goal Monday (see above video) during a 2-0 win for his team.

This is the final chance for Rooney and prospective draftees to impress MLS coaches ahead of the MLS SuperDraft on January 13 in Baltimore. And fortunately for Rooney, he’s been impressive thus far.

Rooney, age 20, was in the youth academy at Everton from age 6 to 12 and then went on to play for Huddersfield Town and Macclesfield Town in England. He’s now hoping to become a professional player in Major League Soccer. Judging by the way he scored his goal Monday, his chances of playing his soccer in America are quite promising.
