CHRISTIAN BENTEKE missed a crucial penalty on his full debut for Wayne Rooney’s DC United as they dropped to bottom of the league.
With 66 minutes on the clock against Colarado Rapids the Belgian stepped up and saw his spot-kick saved by William Yarbrough.
The game ended 0-0 and it means DC United are rooted to the bottom of the MLS with just five games left of the season.
Rooney’s side find themselves on 26 points, six behind second bottom Chicago in the Eastern Conference.
There is no relegation in the MLS so they will not be demoted.
The former Derby boss is not having the desired effect since joining the club back in July,
Rooney played for DC United during his playing days appearing 52 times scoring 25 times.
But he is finding managing them tougher despite signing ex-Crystal Palace and Liverpool star Benteke.
He is yet to score for the club having appeared just twice, following a substitute appearance last week.
Rooney has added other Premier League experience to his starting XI having signed former ‘wonderkid’ Ravel Morrison.
