It did not take long for Bastian Schweinsteiger to make an impact in Major League Soccer.
Schweinsteiger was thrown directly into the Fire lineup on Saturday, and started in central midfield alongside U.S. international Dax McCarty and Juninho.
The midfielder's goal did not hold up, as the Impact went on to score the next two, before a late equalizer Luis Solignac saw the sides split the points with a 2-2 draw.
It was a solid game for Schweinsteiger besides the goal, as he made a couple of key passes that led to good chances for the Fire, including sprining Solignac in on goal that was broken up by a professional foul from the Impact's Víctor Cabrera.
Schweinsteiger also narrowly missed doubling his tally on the day in the second half, putting a second set-piece effort just wide.
