Germany 7-1 Latvia: Chelsea FC star Kai Havertz impresses in Euros warm-up friendly rout

Kai Havertz impressed as Germany ended their Euro 2020 warm-up with a 7-1 rout of Latvia.

Chelsea’s Champions League hero Havertz was involved in three of Germany’s five first-half goals before making way for team-mate Timo Werner for the second half, who scored one of his own.

Thomas Muller also netted his first since being recalled to the national side for the tournament.

Latvia reported a positive result for the coronavirus among the team hours before kick-off.

Germany will face tougher opposition in their opening game against world champions France in Munich on June 15, with Portugal and Hungary completing a tough in Group F.

But Germany coach Joachim Low can’t have asked for more from his side as they produced a complete performance before leaving for their tournament base in Herzogenaurach in Bavaria on Tuesday.

Captain Manuel Neuer became the first Germany goalkeeper to reach 100 appearances, applauded before the game by some 1,000 spectators permitted amid coronavirus restrictions.
