Watch: Chelsea’s Kai Havertz scores for Germany with a sweeping finish
Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz scored with a sweeping finish during Germany’s World Cup qualifier with Iceland.
Havertz has had a difficult debut season at Stamford Bridge with illness and injuries curtailing his progress.
Yet the 21-year-old remains one of Germany’s most talented youngsters and showcased his ability against Iceland.
Germany were already leading through a Leon Goretzka goal when Iceland surrendered possession in their own half.
Joshua Kimmich threaded through an intelligent pass that found Leroy Sane unmarked.
Sane instantly cut the ball back to the onrushing Havertz, who swept a first-time finish past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson.
Germany will be looking to make amends for their disastrous title defence in 2018, where they crashed out in the group stages.
