Ferguson shook hands with all 22 players prior to the match at Hampden Park, which finished 3-2 to the reigning world champions.
Thomas Muller scored twice and provided an assist to help keep Germany on course to reach next summer’s European Championships in France.
Schweinsteiger also produced an assured performance in midfield, and the watching Ferguson will have been impressed by the Manchester United’s summer signing’s display.

Will Man United see the best of Schweinsteiger?
While Manchester United have already taken Schweinsteiger to their hearts, they are still yet to see the very best of the former Bayern Munich star.
Now 31, some fans are understandably a little concerned that Schweinsteiger might be past his best.
Would Pep Guardiola have allowed the experienced central midfielder to leave the Allianz Arena this summer were that not the case?
Still, if the World Cup winner can avoid injuries, Manchester United should see glimpses of Schweinsteiger at his mercurial best over the next few seasons.
