Emre Can has stated that he is very proud to have made his first international cap for the Germany national team.
The 21-year-old posted an image of himself celebrating with his teammates along with the following caption, “I am very proud to have completed my first cap for the senior team. I’d like to thank everybody who accompanied me so far on this path!”
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.
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 starting line-up for Germany’s clash with Scotland on Tuesday.
