Germany defeated Poland 3-1 at home to move into first place in Euro 2016 qualification Group D. Joachim Low fielded Can at right back despite the 21-year-old playing in midfield for his club. Can spent last season at Liverpool playing at centre-back and at right-back.
Mario Götze scored a brace and Muller scored Germanys’s other goal while Lewandowski scored Poland’s only goal of the game.
The 21-year-old received a rating of 7.48 from whoscored for his debut performance. Can made two successful tackles, one interception and three clearances. The Liverpool man maintained a passing accuracy of 88% and made one key pass.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man is expected to keep his place in the squad for Germany’s clash with Scotland on Tuesday. Germany are top in Group D with 16 points in seven games. The 2014 World Cup winners have won their last four group games.
Following the final whistle we took to Twitter to see how Can’s latest performance went down on social media. Read a selection of what we found below:
Joachim Löw: "I like the way Emre Can plays. Technically he is clever, he plays clean, simple passes and has a good positional sense." #LFC

Emre Can miscontrolls the ball again. Has not looked at all assured at right back in Frankfurt tonight. Löw shakes his head in response.

Emre Can should never play right back again. Disastrous
