WATCH Wayne Rooney’s Dive That Got Bastian Schweinsteiger Sent Off in Champions League [VIDEO]

In the first leg of Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final between Manchester United and Bayern Munich, Wayne Rooney got Bastian Schweinsteiger sent off at Old Trafford after he dived to accentuate the late tackle by the German midfielder.

The incident happened in the final few minutes of the game. Rooney dribbled to turn past Schweinsteiger. The German midfielder tried to stop Rooney from sprinting away, but Rooney — without being touched at all — dived over the on-rushing Schweinsteiger, feigned contact and then landed on the ground, putting his hands to his face and not moving until the referee pulled out the red card to give it to Schweinsteiger.

Schweinsteiger will now miss the second leg of the match. Plus, Bayern Munich will be without Javi Martinez and Thiago Alcântara.
