Hoffenheim's Nico Schulz was Germany's matchwinning hero last night as he earned Germany a 2-1 win over Peru with a late goal in his international debut.
The left-back took a shot from the edge of the penalty area that slipped under the keeper's body and slowly rolled in. After the game, he admitted the goal was a bit fortunate.
"It's great to play for the national team. My goal was a bit lucky. Before their goal, I could have knocked the ball away. That what a bit annoying," Schulz told RTL and added:
"I really liked the international match week. The boys have given me a good reception. But there's still a lot to improve on the pitch."
