Just last month, Kai Havertz helped Chelsea win the Champions League by scoring the only goal in the final against Manchester City.

There were question marks over the young player following his big money move from the German Bundesliga, after a slow start to the season.

The highly rated forward has taken his end of season form to the German national team and has entered the record books for his country at Euro 2020.

The 22-year-old scored the third goal for Germany as the Germans came from behind to beat Portugal 4-2.

Havertz helped force Portugal to two own goals before scoring the third to help Germany to a massive victory, having lost their Euro 2020 opener to France.

Havertz set a record with his goal as he’s now Germany’s youngest striker.

At 22 years and 8 days old, Kai Havertz is Germany’s youngest ever goalscorer in a European Championship game, and youngest at any major tournament (World Cup/Euros) since Thomas Müller against Uruguay at the 2010 World Cup (20y 300d).

Surely, next season will be better for Havertz, as the German has been brewing in confidence.
