WATCH: Bastian Schweinsteiger Does His Best Karim Benzema Impression

Bastian Schweinsteiger channeled his inner-Karim Benzema as he absolutely rinsed three defenders on the byline.

The German ended his miserable spell at Manchester United by heading to the MLS with Chicago Fire, and he's proving to be a big hit over in the States. From scoring, creating goals to retiring players.

Chicago Fire traveled to DC United earning their first away win - or like how the folks across the pond say 'road victory' - as they beat the hosts 1-0.

Though the main takeaway from the game was Schweinsteiger's absurd piece of skill.

Instead of holding onto the ball in the corner, the World Cup winner had other plans as he had the urge to ruin the lives of three players.

C'mon Nemanja.

Not only did he glide his way through DC's defence but also put the ball on a plate.

Though the midfielder was denied the assist of the season as Nikolic blazed over the bar. Such a shame.

Guess that's the frustration he was talking about.

"We all know that this league is just not like the Premier League or the Bundesliga and, of course, it can be frustrating on the pitch at times when things discussed [in the team meeting] are not implemented or when somebody loses a ball or just does not have an eye for the teammate." He said about the league via Goal.

His early heroics have seen his new side reach second in the Eastern Conference following his two goals and two assist from just eight appearances.

The 32-year-old is bossing proceedings over in America while showing Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho what he's missing.
