Nobody quite knows for certain yet why Can did not get the nod but there have been suggestions that it was due to a minor injury.

Nice pass for the assist but is Can carrying an injury?
Emre Can’s assist for Germany’s 4th, he misplaced quite a few passes though, think he’s struggling with an injury pic.twitter.com/z6eNzAda5h

Bit harsh! an assist is an assist at the end of the day.
I was expecting a rabona cross or trivela pass, my grandpa could make that pass hahah

The Twitterati were perplexed as to why Can did not get to start against Mexico.
Was he injured? does Joachim Low not trust him yet? after all this is a weakened Germany side missing most of their first team stars.
Shocking decision he has been boss in the midfield in there games #LFC

Emre Can can’t even start for Germany B team yet Liverpool fans on here will try to convince you all that he’s world class prospect.

At £120k ? He’s got much more work to do in my opinion before he should be near that figure..

He loses possesion too easily with skills he cant quite perform

Played poorly when he came on to be honest ?

You mean that simple 5 yard pass??

What a ball by Can too. Continues to get better and better.

I feel Emre Can is underrated

He gives with one hand, takes with the other.
Can gives away the free kick that leads to the Mexico goal, 1 minute later assists Younes for a Germany goal. Classic Emre Can

There were Liverpool fans asking for Can’s contract to be renewed again, this has become a common theme lately.
The 23-year-old has just 12 months remaining on his current deal and has yet to sign an extension.
You can sign Keita and renew Emre’s contract on the same day ??
