The former Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder signed with the Fire on March 21 and was presented to the media earlier this week.
Schweinsteigerwas 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 equalizerLuis 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 spriningSolignac in on goal that was broken up by a professional foul from the Impact'sVíctor Cabrera.
Schweinsteiger also narrowly missed doubling his tally on the day in the second half, putting a second set-piece effort just wide.
