Borussia Dortmund internationals: Mahmoud Dahoud makes Germany debut in draw against Turkey

Seven Borussia Dortmund players were in action on Wednesday evening, including Mahmoud Dahoud, who made his senior debut for Germany.

Germany took on Turkey in the first of their three fixtures of this international break, with Borussia Dortmund trio Emre Can, Nico Schulz and Julian Brandt all in the starting line-up for Die Mannschaft. Can played on the right side of a back three, while Nico Schulz was deployed in his usual left wing-back role, and Julian Brandt lined up in attacking midfield.

Germany took the lead thrice, but were pegged back by Turkey on all three occasions, with Kenan Karaman scoring a 94th minute equaliser to seal a 3-3 draw. Julian Draxler, Florian Neuhaus and Luca Waldschmidt scored for Joachim Löw’s side.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud came on in the 79th minute to earn his first senior cap for Germany.

Manuel Akanji was also set to play on Wednesday, but instead had to go into quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. Switzerland’s friendly against Croatia went ahead, with the 2018 World Cup finalists getting a 2-1 win. Raphael Guerreiro played 68 minutes as Portugal and Spain played out a goalless draw in their international friendly. Thomas Delaney was an unused substitute as Denmark enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 win against the Faroe Islands.

Elsewhere, Jude Bellingham came off the bench for the final 20 minutes, but England U-21s were held to a 3-3 draw by minnows Andorra in their Euro 2021 qualifier. While Luca Unbehaun played the second half and kept a clean sheet to help Germany U-20s earn a 3-1 win over Switzerland U-20s.
