Liverpool and Manchester United supporters left plenty of kind words for Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz on social media yesterday after England finally overcame their hoodoo against Germany.
Gareth Southgate’s side swashbuckled their way to a 2-0 victory in last night’s Euro 2020 clash at Wembley and progress to the quarter-finals and a date with Ukraine in Rome.
But the historic win wasn’t without several scary moments.
Jordan Pickford was called into action twice to deny Chelsea duo Havertz and Timo Werner, before Thomas Muller missed a huge chance to equalise.
Thankfully for the Three Lions, they survived and roar into the next round.
Despite being on the losing side, followers of Premier League rivals saved some praise for Havertz, who was arguably Germany’s best player on the night.
Here’s what some Liverpool and United fans had to say about Havertz on Twitter:
It was a disappointing end to what had been a very promising tournament for Havertz.
The 22-year-old scored twice in the group stages and looked like Germany’s biggest threat against England.
His sizzling strike was brilliantly tipped over by Pickford, plus Havertz should have earned an assist had Muller not fluffed his lines.
However, the overall signs are encouraging for Havertz as he now focuses on returning to Chelsea for pre-season training.
