Late Schweinsteiger goal propels Fire over Impact (video)
At 35-years-old, Bastian Schweinsteiger still has some fuel left in the tank.
88 minutes in, with the score tied at 2-2, the World Cup-winning defender proved to be the difference, rising and heading in a cross from Djordje Mihailovic’s corner kick into the back of the net. It’s his first goal of the season, but an important one as the Chicago Fire look to make a late push into the Eastern Conference playoff race.
The German star, who initially signed for the Fire in 2017, signed a one-year extension in late 2018, which ends in late December of 2019.
