Chelsea Champions League winner Kai Havertz is looking forward to coming up against England in what will be a 'special game' for the youngster following his first season in the Premier League.

Havertz is one of three players in the German squad to face England on Tuesday, with Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger also likely to feature.

Speaking to the media ahead of the match, the 22-year-old discussed his emotions about playing at Wembley.

“Of course, this is a special game for me." he said.

The forward continued: “I’ve played at Wembley at one point or another. It’s a big game for all of us and we’ll do everything we can to win.”

Being asked about the potential of a penalty shoot-out, the German said: “Of course, you have to be prepared and after training you sometimes take a penalty or two.

“But the 120 minutes before that are much more important and we’ll try to win the game before then. If that happens, I would definitely take a penalty.”

Havertz has been the stand-out player for Germany at the European Championship, netting two goals in three games as his morale is high following the Champions League win.

These performances have led to Havertz being named the favourite to win Young Player of the Tournament at Euro 2020.

Havertz's Germany face off against Mason Mount, Reece James and Ben Chilwell's England on Tuesday evening.
