WATCH: Emre Can’s first Germany goal is likely to be his best ever in international football

What a hit...

Simon Lloyd

Emre Can has his first goal for Germany.

As our headline suggests, we’re reasonably confident that the Liverpool midfielder won’t score a better one for as long as he plays international football.

Already 4-1 up against Azerbaijan in Kaiserslautern, Can picked the ball up around 30-yards from goal and let fly. Although the ball wasn’t perfectly in the top corner, the power generated by the 23-year-old caused it to move all over the place, completely deceiving the goalkeeper. All that was missing was a bit of Alan Partridge commentary…

The goal completed the scoring for Joachim L├Âw’s men, who will face England in a friendly at Wembley next month.

All in all, Sunday wasn’t a bad night for Liverpool’s players. Mo Salah scored twice for Egypt – the second of which was a qualification-clinching stoppage-time penalty.

They will now return to Merseyside ahead of their Saturday lunchtime meeting with Manchester United at Anfield.
