With the hood that had dragged him down, Havertz had left unknown headlights when Joshua Kimmich dug in Leverkusen the best Way Uli-Hoeneße. The 19-year-old was "one for Bayern," the Munich defender said late Thursday night: "I can not buy it, but he is a player who would do us well."
If the champion of the German championship championship actually signed Havertz for his reported big storms in the summer, it would be an expensive pleasure. The pan-European sought-after striker Bayer Leverkusen (2022 contract) has increased its market value with an excellent start-up in the national team by winning 3-0 (3-0) in Leipzig against Russia.
"It was a lot of fun," said Fritz Walter Gold Medal winner of the best German U-19 player this year: "I think this performance is a good start." It was too modest Kimmich said, "He was the best man in the field, he has a brutal feeling in the room, I hope he will do a lot of games for us."
For the national team, I think. Besides Bayern, Havertz is also interested in FC Barcelona and Arsenal. He gets a hype around his person, "but I always stay on the ground," he said. His playful example is Mesut Özil, who favored the national team in disputes: "I always wanted to look at the Özil game: overview, calm on the ball – that's what I'm looking for a lot."
Mopeds in attack
His passing deep into the third goal from Serge Gnabra (40th minute) really reminded Özil. Havertz has shown himself in his favorite position at the attack center, why experts see him as an upcoming superstar. "I can imagine that he can play a key role in the next few years," said national coach Joachim Loew.
In the last group of the League of Nations this Monday (20.45 / ARD) in Gelsenkirchen against Dutch coach Joachim Loew will replace the young man, but will return Toni Kroose. However, the future belongs to Havertz. For his age, "it's already remarkably good," Löw said, "looks very calm."
In addition to the mighty Havertz, the lightning storm trio Gnabra, Leroy Sané and Timo Werner left the strong-minded Russians too. "They are small mopeds in the front," said defender Niklas Süle, who scored 2-0 (25) after an early lead by Sané (8). Seven players in the starting XI against the quarter-finals of the World Cup were 23 or younger. Havertz faces a generational change after the World Cup's historic debacle.
