Bastian Schweinsteiger scores a rare open goal for Germany
2015-16 was a tough year for Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The German star repeatedly was on the sidelines with injury at Old Trafford, as his first season with the Red Devils was stunted.
Schweinsteiger missed the entire end to United’s season, while many were wondering whether he’d be fit for the Euros at all.
But on Sunday night against the Ukraine, not only did Schweinsteiger return to action, but he scored a crucial second goal for Die Mannschaft which brought the house down.
For the first time in seven years, Schweinsteiger scored in open play for Germany.
Moreover, it was the first goal Schweinsteiger had scored for his country in four years (his previous four goals were all from the penalty spot).
Ozil assist, Schweinsteiger scores
In the second minute of injury time, Premier League players Mesut Ozil and Schweinsteiger linked up.
The Arsenal playmaker delivered a sweet left footed cross into the Ukraine box, and the Man United man converted a fabulous half-volley at the back stick.
Adidas have celebrated the goal on social media.
