Germany captain Manuel Neuer’s comeback ended in a 2-1 defeat by Austria in a friendly delayed by 105 minutes because of heavy rain in Klagenfurt.
Goalkeeper Neuer, out since September with a broken foot, returned just 15 days before his country’s World Cup defence begins against Mexico.
Mesut Ozil pounced on a goalkeeping error to give Germany the lead.
But Martin Hinteregger equalised with a superb angled volley before Alessandro Schopf steered in the winner.
It ensured Austria their first win over Germany in 32 years and maintained Franco Foda’s 100% record since becoming their coach last November.
