Bastian Schweinsteiger trains with Germany ahead of Ireland clash

by Sam Peoples

Bastian Schweinsteiger has been hard in training with Germany ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier clash with Republic of Ireland tonight.

The veteran midfielder will no doubt be happy to see lots of his old team-mates and German compatriots following his move to Manchester United this summer.

It was during the last international break that Schweinsteiger played his first full 90 minutes of the season and what followed was some dominant performances for Man United, so fans will be hoping he can have another strong couple of games for Germany.

Against Arsenal, Schweinsteiger was played in an unusual running midfield role against some dynamic opposition and he could hardly get his foot on the ball. His best games for United have come when he’s sat as a deep lying anchor midfielder and that’s the position he plays for Germany.

Ireland are the home side and will be desperate for a win in their bid to qualify for Euro 2016, so Schweinsteiger could be in for a tough game and we’ll bring you the reaction to his performance and how he got on.
