The German national team took advantage of Peru's defensive errors to win a match that started with a great goal by Peru's Luis Advincula, in a friendly played here.
The match on Sunday was only the second time Germany and Peru have met in 48 years, the first time was in the 1970 World Cup, when Germany beat Peru 3-1 with a Gerd Mueller hat-trick, reports Efe news.
Ricardo Gareca's team opened the scoring after 22 minutes with a goal from Advincula, who showed his speed to overcome the German defence and then beat German goalie Marc-Andre Ter Stegen with a powerful shot.
For their part, striker Jefferson Farfan led Peru's attack, but was sometimes left alone in front of the German goal waiting for a teammate to assist him.
In the second half, Farfan wasted two chances to increase Peru's lead when he missed a header and an Advincula pass.
The German team also missed the chance to score from a free kick when Petersen struck poorly on the rebound.
However, Nico Schulz enjoyed a dream international debut when he scored Germany's second goal after 84 minutes, which slipped out of Gallese's hands after the inaction of the Peruvian defence.
