Rooney, 32, arrived shortly after 2 p.m., and was greeted by swaths of D.C. United fans.

Rooney stopped to acknowledge the fans, signing autographs and taking selfies.

The English soccer star is the most celebrated D.C. United signing since Freddy Adu, who became the youngest professional athlete in U.S. history at the age of 14 in 2004.
