Germany 2-1 Peru: Nico Schulz scores late winner for hosts

Nico Schulz
Hoffenheim midfielder Nico Schulz previously played for Hertha Berlin and Borussia Monchengladbach

Nico Schulz scored an 85th-minute winner on his debut as Germany came from behind to beat Peru in a friendly.

Hoffenheim's Schulz punished a poor clearance with a finish that squirmed under goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.

Peru, who played at their first World Cup finals in 26 years this summer, took a shock lead through full-back Luis Advincula's low, drilled effort.

But Germany levelled before half-time through Julian Brandt's dinked finish with Schulz netting late on.
