Bastian Schweinsteiger marks his MLS debut in the best way possible

Paul Moore

They’re going to win the World Cup.

This week, football fans saw Jose Mourinho do something that we’ve rarely seen. Na, it wasn’t conduct an incredibly frosty interview with a journalist, that’s common at this stage, but in a moment of humility,  he offered an apology to Bastian Schweinsteiger.

After deciding to leave Old Trafford, the German will now be doing his very best to guide Chicago Fire to the World Cup MLS Cup and the World Cup winner has started his US adventure in the best way possible.

Schweinsteiger’s bullet header has given Chicago Fire an early lead against Montreal Impact in their game at Toyota Park.

Clearly this goal is far more important than his brace against Portugal in World Cup 2006, that last-minute winner against Watford or countless others that he has scored in his glittering career.

This being said, it’s nice to see him getting off the mark.
