Germany Vs Peru: Joachim Low Happy Despite Slim Win
For Germany Coach Joachim Low ‘half loaf of bread is better than puff puff’.
Germany secured their first victory since they crashed out of the 2018 World Cup at the group stage as they secured a 2-1 friendly win over Peru.
It was debutant Nico Schulz that saved the Germans their blushes as his 85th minute scruffy shot squirmed under Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese's body.
Peru had led at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Sunday when Luis Advincula stormed past Schulz and squeezed a near-post effort beyond Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
However, it was Germany that had the last laugh and that was gladdening for their coach.
"I'm glad that we won the game," Germany head coach Low told RTL.
"We felt that the team wanted to win the match, they fought until the end.
"We missed a lot of chances in the first half. That was the problem. The substitutions made the rhythm a bit broken. The balance is not yet 100 per cent."
Low admitted that Schulz could have done better for Peru's goal but was pleased he turned out to be the match-winner.
"I'm happy for him, because he also made a good impression in training and made a very committed game," Low added. "He is physically very good and fast."
Brandt was in Russia for the World Cup, though he featured for just 19 minutes in three substitute appearances.
