International Friendlies – Germany Vs Peru: Schulz Strikes Late To Secure Victory
Match Report – Germany Vs Peru:
- Debutante Nico Schulz scored a scruffy 85th-minute goal, as Germany asserted their first triumph since their World Cup disaster, by beating Peru 2-1 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
- Schulz’s unconvincing endeavour had all the earmarks of being heading wide of the goal. However, Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese redirected the Hoffenheim man’s strike into the net.

- Schulz was one of those punishable for the Peruvians’ goal, neglecting to stop Luis Advincula breezing past him down Germany’s left before beating Marc-Andre ter Stegen from a tight point.
- However Joachim Low’s men answered three minutes after Peru’s goal through Julian Brandt’s chipped finish, and Schulz’s late goal guaranteed the Germans a win after their poor exhibitions in Russia.
Brandt, who scored their first goal, was extremely impressive, and could thrive if Löw is to trust the younger players rather than stick with the old guard.

- Germany began splendidly as Marco Reus was denied inside two minutes by Gallese. At that point he kept out Matthias Ginter’s free header from a corner, before Peru took a 22nd-minute lead.
- Advincula was given excessive space and neither Schulz, Niklas Sule or Germany goalkeeper Ter Stegen could keep his close post strike out.
- However the hosts hit back rapidly, as Brandt lifted the ball over the propelling keeper, after Toni Kroos’ pass found the Bayer Leverkusen winger.
Two quick goals within a few minutes at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena! Despite a dominant German start, Advincula made it 1-0 to Peru as he smashed the ball into the net after 22 minutes. Three minutes later, Julian Brandt equalised with a lofted finish. #GERPER #DieMannschaft

- The two teams made several shots in the second half. Timo Werner squandered Brandt’s great work by shooting over, before Jefferson Farfan discharged wide of the goal post when assisted by Advincula.
