Germany beat Italy for the first time in 21 years at the Allianz stadium last night and they did it in style recording a 4-1 victory over the Azzurri.
Liverpool star Emre Can did not start for Germany but he did make a second half appearance playing the last 20 minutes as a substitute for Thomas Muller.
We took a look at what the reaction was to Can’s display on social media.

Can was one of two ethnic Turks in the Germany national team along with Mesut Ozil who he celebrated with after the Arsenal star scored from the penalty spot.

Some Liverpool fans hoped Can used the opportunity to tell his Germany international teammates why they should join the Reds over the summer.
Hoping our future captain Emre did his fair share of recruiting ⚽️😎 #LFC

Can could not help but break out into a pose after the victory and share it on Instagram – Derek Zoolander would be proud.
Yet again most of the talk surrounding Can was actually regarding his looks – and his hair. Female and male fans alike were full of compliments.
Emre Can 😍😍
