Germany defeated Peru in their first match of 2023, winning tonight’s friendly 2-0 thanks to a first-half brace from Niclas Füllkrug.

Speaking after the game, Joshua Kimmich highlighted Germany’s presence in the box as the key to the win.

“We started the game well and had chances for more goals. The second half was disjointed. We have to make fewer mistakes and control the whole game. It’s great when our strikers score. Having people in the box really helped us today,” said Kimmich.

Next up for Kimmich and Germany is a friendly against Belgium on Tuesday.
