Surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, former Germany international and World Cup winner Schweinsteiger has hit the ground running in the United States with a goal on his debut on April 1 and the 32-year-old was at it again on Saturday.

Schweinsteiger opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime, collecting the ball on the edge of the penalty area before driving into the box and firing a shot across goalkeeper Cody Cooper.

Nemanja Nikolic then bagged a second-half brace as the Fire remain unbeaten in three matches since Schweinsteiger's arrival.

Orlando City has built a fortress following a thrilling 2-1 win at home to the Galaxy.

Playing at Orlando City Stadium this season, Orlando made it four successive victories thanks to Cyle Larin's dramatic 91st-minute winner.

The Galaxy's Romain Alessandrini had equalized in the 83rd minute to cancel out Will Johnson's first-half opener.
