England finally knocked Germany out of a major competition after their 2-0 win at Wembley on Tuesday.
Despite having several good chances in the game, the Germans failed to score, and the Three Lions capitalised on those mistakes, with Raheem Sterling opening the scoring in the 75th minute, before Harry Kane secured victory with his first goal of the championships four minutes from time.
There was heavy Chelsea involvement on the German side, with Timo Werner, Antonio Rudiger and Kai Havertz all featuring. Of course, on a positive note for Chelsea fans, all three have survived the tournament unscathed and should join up with the Blues for pre-season injury-free.
However, the disappointment of being knocked out will haunt them for the next few weeks.
Fortunately, as relayed by beIN SPORTS broadcaster, Carrie Brown, a ‘large group’ of England and Chelsea supporters tried to cheer Havertz up whilst he was on media duties after the game, something that will surely help him moving forward.
“Kai Havertz fronting for interview and a large group of England/Chelsea fans trying to cheer him up. That’s class,” said Brown on Twitter.
But still, the talented attacker will be hurting for a little while longer, as he expressed in his post-match interview with beIN Sports: “Of course, we are very disappointed to lose the game but we have to keep on going. It’s hard to take for us.”.
And the Chelsea frontman still had time to pay tribute to his national team manager, Joachim Low, who will now officially step down from his duties.

“I think he is, for Germany, the biggest manager of all time,” he added. “The whole country is proud of him, the players are proud of him. The career of him is unbelievable and we are very disappointed (not) to give him the best end.”
Hopefully, Havertz will recover from this loss quickly and will be ready for Chelsea’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Villarreal on August 11.
