Germany needed to beat Portugal if they wanted to progress from the group of death, that also included France and Hungary.

Germany were beaten by France in their first group game, but bounced back with a 4-2 victory over Portugal.

Kai Havertz had a good game and scored the third goal for the Germans as they came from behind to beat Portugal.

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.

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).

Speaking after German’s victory, Havertz told Magenta TV: “We can be satisfied with the performance.

“It was important not to throw everything overboard after the France game, but to stay true to ourselves. We trust the system and we trust the players.

“Hungary will be a tough opponent that you can’t underestimate, very strong defensively. They’ll be another tough opponent.”
