What They're Saying: Wayne Rooney

"I wish I had 11 [subs available to make]. I had to keep the two [others] in case of injuries."

-- D.C. United coach Wayne Rooney on his late first-half triple substitution -- pulling Ted Ku-Dipietro, Chris Durkin and Gaoussou Samake for Taxi Fountas, Andy Najar and Pedro Santos -- in the 1-0 loss at last-place Eastern Conference team Toronto FC, a statement to the team, he said, that "I didn't like the first half at all." It marked the first time an MLS team subbed three players in the first half since 2013 and just the third time in league history. (MLSSoccer.com)
