Chelsea summer signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz were on song for Germany in their 3-3 draw against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League Group D game.

It wasn’t just that the Chelsea duo got goals, but they also got an assist each in the process.

Germany started the game brilliantly but went 1-0 down following a header from Gavronavic.

Freuler added to the score with a fantastic chip in the 26th. However, two minutes after his goal, there was a Chelsea connection as Timo Werner benefitted from Havertz’s clever play and scored the opening goal for Germany.

Germany were pushing to level things in the second half, and Kai Havertz scored the equaliser ten minutes after the restart. Gavronavic made it 3-2 to the Swiss as he bagged a brace immediately after Havertz goal.

With Switzerland leading 3-2, Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry who tormented Chelsea in the Champions League last season, equalised for the Germans with a delightful flick in the 60th minute.

Despite all, the game ended 3-3, and Switzerland Fabian Schar got a red card in stoppage time, with Antonio Rudiger getting a yellow card late in the game.

Chelsea fans will be wondering why Rudiger has been part of a leaky defence yet again for Germany, after a 3-3 draw with Turkey in this international window.
