Bastian Schweinsteiger is not wasting any time with the Chicago Fire as his debut with the MLS side sees him in the starting lineup.

The midfielder, who joined from Manchester United in March, arrived earlier this week and head coach Veljko Paunovic put him directly in the XI for the Fire’s home match against the Montreal Impact.
