Germany were made to work hard for a three-all draw against Switzerland last night after going two-nil down in the first half.

Chelsea star Kai Havertz was at the centre of the revival, providing an assist for Germany’s first goal scored by his Chelsea teammate Timo Werner and followed it up by netting a goal himself in the 55th minute.

Switzerland regained the lead through Mario Gavranovic before Gnabry scored in the 60th minute and ended the match in a stalemate.

Germany manager Joachim Löw hailed Kai Havertz.

“He had a good game,” he told DFB website.

“You could see his ability on the ball. He found space and he passed the ball well. His goal was also really nice.”

Germany have been unsteady with their recent performances but Havertz believed they are young and on the right track.

“We came back after several setbacks and showed some character,” he said.

“We’re in the middle of a process and we’re a young side. We won’t allow ourselves to be knocked off course and we will carry on as we are. We need to defend better, but there were plenty of positives on show tonight.”
