July 4 may be an American holiday, but that has not stopped footballers and clubs from around the world wishing their fans a happy Independence Day.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is among those who have taken part in wishing his American fans the best as the United States celebrates its 241st anniversary since the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
But while Schweinsteiger’s well-wishes may not be too surprising given he currently plays for the Chicago Fire in MLS, other European stars have also joined in, including Harry Kane and Jerome Boateng.

The players aren’t the only ones getting in on the act as clubs also have tweeted out their Independence Day messages, with those that could reaching for their American players, past and present, to provide the imagery.
HAPPY #INDEPENDENCEDAY #USA!
