Kai Havertz, a £65million signing for Arsenal, started on the bench for Germany in an international friendly against France.
However, he was introduced with 25 minutes to go, grabbing an assist to help his country defeat the former World Champions.
Despite playing the full 90 minutes, Havertz’s goal was crucial in Germany’s victory. He played a perfect pass to Leroy Sane late in the game, doubling Germany’s lead.
Despite his short time on the pitch, Havertz completed 8/10 passes, created one big chance, won two duels, won one free-kick, made one clearance, and made one tackle.
This impressive cameo will boost Havertz’s confidence ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Goodison Park on Sunday. Havertz will return to London Colney on Thursday as the international break comes to an end.
