“best young star ever”; Watch brilliant performance of Arsenal Bukayo Saka in England 3:3 Germany UEFA Nations League match better than Eden Hazard And Kareem Benzema
England were held to a draw by a late Kai Havertz strike after recovering from 2-0 down to lead Germany with a matter of minutes remaining at Wembley Stadium.
The Three Lions fell behind in the Nations League contest to Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty, awarded after a poor Harry Maguire challenge on Jamal Musiala, early in the second half. Havertz doubled the lead with a superb strike in the 67th minute, putting Die Mannschaft firmly in control.
However, the introductions of Bukayo Saka and Mason Mount transformed the match, and Luke Shaw bundled the ball over the line to halve the deficit. Mount then drew England level with a quarter of an hour remaining, before Harry Kane struck from the penalty spot to send Wembley into frenzy.
The mood was dampened as Havertz pounced on a Nick Pope error to level the score at 3-3 with seconds remaining.
Saka was superb since coming on in the game last night, and he again causes all manner of bother down the inside-right channel. He slips infield for Kane, who turns and whistles a shot towards the top right. It’s deflected out for a corner, but VAR has spotted Schlotterbeck catching Bellingham on the shin with his studs while stretching in the penalty box. I think this is going to be a spot kick for England
