Schweinsteiger and Ibrahimovic reunite as Fire play host to Galaxy

Ibrahimovic scores winner in first LA Galaxy start - Via MLS (0:42)

Zlatan Ibrahimovic heads in what proved to be the winning goal for LA Galaxy at Chicago in his first MLS start. (0:42)

When the LA Galaxy traveled to the Chicago Fire on Saturday, it gave two highly decorated stalwarts the chance to once again square off.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic lined up in attack for the Galaxy, while Bastian Schweinsteiger was deployed in central defense by the Fire to directly counteract the Swede.

However, Schweinsteiger was unable to prevent Ibrahimovic from finding the net -- his third goal in three appearances for the Galaxy -- as the visitors mustered a narrow 1-0 victory at Toyota Park.

Was good to see you my friend @iamzlatanibrahimovic. All the best this season.👍

Thankfully, all previous hostilities were put aside when the veteran duo met up for a brief reunion.

"Was good to see you my friend. All the best this season," Schweinsteiger wrote on Instagram.

Of course, the pair spent a season together at Manchester United not so very long ago before they both headed for pastures new in MLS.
