Kai Havertz on what went wrong for Germany at Wembley

Kai Havertz has spoken on what went wrong in Germany's defeat to England in the EURO 2020 round-of-16 clash. 

Two late goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane gave the Three Lions the win at a packed Wembley Stadium to book a quarter final clash against Ukraine. 

Havertz has arguably been Germany's best player at the tournament, scoring and providing assists.

Speaking after the game, the Chelsea forward talked about their overall performance, and seemed to defend Thomas Muller, who missed a glorious chance with England leading 1-0. 

"All the offensive players had good chances so it’s not only about Thomas, it’s about the whole team," he said afterwards.

"We could have created more chances but we didn’t do that so it’s very tough to take,"

He also paid glowing tribute to Joachim Low, who's set to leave the team after more than a decade at the helm.

"It’s very hard for us," he continued. "For Germany, he has been the biggest manager of all time. The whole country is proud of him and the players are proud of him because his career has been unbelievable.

"We are very disappointed not to give him the best ending but he’s a great manager and a great person for all of us.

"England has a good squad with good players but we have them too so of course we are very disappointed to lose the game.

"It’s hard for us to take but we have to keep on going,"
