World champions Germany defeated hosts Scotland 3-2 here on Monday in the Group D match, with Thomas Muller scoring twice and setting up the third for Ilkay Gundogan. A Mats Hummels own goal and a James McArthur strike gave the hosts a lifeline, but Germany were too strong on the night. The Germany World Cup-winning star has only been a United player for a matter of months but he seemed to embrace the history of the club when greeting Ferguson on Monday night, reports dailymail.com.

The duo shook hands and shared a lengthy chat at Hampden Park here. The former Bayern Munich captain made the 13.2 million pound move this summer, linking up with Dutch coach Louis van Gaal. He has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons and his fitness has been questioned early on in his Premier League career, but the Schweinsteiger played the full 90 minutes for the World Cup-winners in Glasgow.
