Manchester United’s new signing Bastian Schweinsteiger has praised Liverpool midfielder Emre Can on his debut for the national team.
Germany defeated Poland 3-1 at home to move into first place in Euro 2016 qualification Group D. Joachim Low fielded Emre Can at right back on the 21-year-old’s Germany debut.
Schweinsteiger took to Twitter after the game to congratulate Can by uploading a picture of the team celebrating accompanied by the following caption, “Congratulations to Emre #CAN on his debut!”

Can joined the Reds on a £9.75 million transfer from Bayer Leverkusen last summer as a central midfielder however, played predominantly as a defender in Brendan Rodgers back-three and as a full-back.
The 21-year-old has moved back into his preferred midfield role at Liverpool this season but Low decided to play Can as right-back on his international debut for Germany against Poland yesterday.
