Germany's defender Schulz scores winner on debut to sink Peru


Germany defender Nico Schulz scored an 85th-minute goal on his international debut to help his team beat Peru 2-1 in a friendly on Sunday.

Schulz, one of five changes from the team that drew 0-0 with world champions France in the Nations League on Thursday, fired in the late winner to celebrate a memorable first cap in his home stadium.

The Germans are looking to get back on the road to success after crashing out of this year's World Cup in the group stage, their earliest exit from the tournament in 80 years.

Germany coach Joachim Loew wanted to introduce more spark up front and his team went close in the opening 20 minutes through Marco Reus and Matthias Ginter.

It was, however, Peru who struck first when Luis Advincula fired in from a tight angle past keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen after charging past two Germans in the box.

Julian Brandt, another of Loew's changes, paid him back with a superb chip in the 25th minute to draw the hosts level.

After the break Jefferson Farfan and Timo Werner missed identical chances each for Peru and Germany, shooting over the bar after quick breaks.

With the pace had dropped considerably, Schulz grabbed his chance with a shot from 15 meters that slipped under goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and into the net.
