Doha – The 2022 World Cup is now in full swing.

Hardly a day goes by without a new highlight.

In Qatar, the world champion met an old acquaintance, but Schweini doesn't come off particularly well in the joint photo, as

World Cup 2022: Schweinsteiger as ARD expert in Qatar

Schweinsteiger analyzes the World Cup games for ARD live on site in Qatar.

At the tournament in the desert emirate, the ex-FC Bayern player has a new partner at his side.

Moderator Esther Sedlaczek replaced Jessy Wellmer, who is now reporting from Germany in the studio in Mainz.

Schweinsteiger and Sedlaczek were in action for the game between England and the USA on Friday evening.

The Bavarian is very familiar with US soccer thanks to his almost three-year spell with the Chicago Fire.

Due to the time difference, the duo had to last until midnight local time before closing time.

Previously, Schweinsteiger apparently spent his free time on the beach in Qatar.

World Cup expert Schweinsteiger does not come off well in the photo with Rio Ferdinand

Former world-class defender Rio Ferdinand posted a photo of himself and Schweinsteiger on the beach on social media on Twitter and Instagram on Friday.

The two appear to be having fun together and smile happily at the camera.

Schweinsteiger wears a white polo shirt and shorts, plus a blue cap.

Ferdinand presents his steely torso, which is only covered by a gold chain.

The two have known each other for a long time from England.

Ferdinand became a club legend in twelve years at Manchester United.

Schweinsteiger, who also played for the Red Devils for two years, only came to the island a year after Ferdinand's departure.

Although they narrowly missed each other, you know each other well.

However, Instagram followers have also identified a similarity between Schweinsteiger and the former and current US President: "I really thought for a second that was Donald Trump" and "I thought for a minute that was Joe Biden".

Schweinsteiger's gray hair may have been the reason for the mix-up for some.

In addition, Trump also likes to wear a cap in public.

"He looks 20 years older than Rio," said another fan. In fact, Schweinstiger (38 years) is six years younger than Ferdinand (44).

In addition to the amenities in Qatar, Schweinsteiger, as an ARD expert, would like to concentrate primarily on sporting events.

After the defeat of the German national team, he started to analyze the anger after the World Cup shame.

In addition, Schweinsteiger took on Süle and Goretzka live on TV.
