Chelsea striker Timo Werner has continued his fine form with an awesome goal as Germany played out a 1-1 draw with Spain in the UEFA Nations League clash.

Antonio Rudiger was in the heart of defence for Germany, with Werner leading the attack, and Werner scored a brilliant goal early in the second half.

Werner collected a pass from Robin Gosens 15 yards from goal, and then shifted the ball out of his feet and away from of a couple of Spanish defenders, before firing a well placed shot into the bottom left-hand corner, well beyond the reach of David de Gea to mark his 12th international goal.

Werner had a chance to double his side’s lead shortly after his first goal, but he shot into the side-netting from a tight angle following a slightly over hit pass from Leroy Sane.

Rudiger also came close to scoring a second goal for Germany, from a corner which was worn from Werner’s tireless running. Werner was eventually replaced in the first minute of added time, but Valencia’s Jose Gaya scored Spain’s equaliser in the 96th minute to mark a painful finish to the game for Germany.

Kepa Arrizabalaga was an unused sub for Spain.
