Schweinsteiger headed in the opener from David Accam's cross in his side's 2-2 draw against Montreal Impact.

Jose Mourinho has admitted he regrets his treatment of the World Cup victor and Manchester United after he was exiled from the first-team training.

The former Germany worldwide said his "dream came true" when he was able to force his way back into contention and play under Mourinho. Schweinsteiger scored a goal on a header seventeen minutes into the match.

Schweinsteiger's final words were for the Fire fans, who have made him feel instantly at home in Chicago and on the field at Toyota Park.

Bastian Schweinsteiger scores on a header to give Chicago Fire the lead in his MLS debut. I knew, at that moment, we had too many players.

"It was a good feeling but I'm a little bit sad and not so happy that we couldn't win the game", Schweinsteiger told reporters after the game. So, when he was asking me to let him leave, I had to say "yes, you can leave" because I did it once, I cannot do it twice, so I feel sorry for the first period with him.

But three minutes into stoppage time, Chicago scored again through Luis Solignac to earn a deserved share of the points.

"It's not easy. I came here I think four, five days ago so, but it was OK, I was actually prepared", the 32-year-old said. "I will definitely work on my fitness and have more power and energy in the game".

But Schweinsteiger said he was pleased with how the Fire dealt with the adversity, even if the result wasn't quite what he dreamed of.

"I'm happy that he knows because I told him and I will miss a good guy, a good professional, a good influence in training".
