New Chelsea star Kai Havertz lasted 89 minutes in Germany’s 3-3 draw against Turkey, and it was enough for him to get two assists in the game.
The 24-year-old summer signing provided a defence-splitting pass for Julian Draxler to open the scoring on the stroke of half-time, and then showed some mesmerising quick feet on the edge of the box to set up the second for Florian Neuhaus.
However, former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol was critical of Havertz performance despite his double assists. Nicol said Havertz drifted in and out of the game too frequently.
“It’s weird [with Kai Havertz],” Nicol told ESPN.
“Some of the things he did [against Turkey] were really delicate and simple and well executed.
“But then he disappeared for long periods so he kind of played the way he does for Chelsea.
“He’s kind of nowhere and then he will have a lovely touch or a nice pass with the perfect weight. He will do something that keeps you interested.
“Officially he had two assists but he was in and out of the game and that’s not what you would expect from a guy who has cost so much money.”
