Kai Havertz played his part in helping his country to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2021 and he also helped his team reach the quarter-finals of the competition. This is not only a remarkable achievement by a German national team, but also by a player born and raised in Germany. That is why many people are excited to see him playing for the German national team in the forthcoming World Cup tournaments. If you too want to be in the same situation, then you must learn how to train effectively as well as how to perform well while playing football.
Kai Havertz is only 21 years of age, which makes him very young compared to the likes of Vieira and Beckham. He is also right-footed, which is an important part of a footballing career in Germany. Born in Aachen, Kai Havertz has also enjoyed time in Bundesliga for Leverkusen as well as in the UEFA Youth League for Leverkusen. He has also tasted success on the pitch with a stint with Portuguese side Vitoria Guimete where he impressed the manager with his excellent skills on the ball. So what does this young attacking midfielder have that makes him one of the favorites to represent Germany at the forthcoming World Cup?
First of all, Kai Havertz oozes energy and can run very quickly both forwards and backward. He is comfortable both playing on the wings or as an attacking midfielder. He has been a regular in the starting eleven for the national team and has played some key roles throughout the past season, which often means that he is preferred as one of the senior players in the team. He has been capped by Germany on numerous occasions and has not disappointed the coach at any point.
As mentioned earlier, Kai Havertz impressed during the past season with a spell on the left-wing for Leverkusen. This was probably the first international appearance for the youngster and he impressed the coach and the club management during the game. There were no expectations for Havertz from this point, as he was just another player trying to impress in the hope of being called up for the next international break. However, things changed when Joachim Rieder was injured and the position became vacant for the national team selection. Rieder’s replacement was Thomas Henrich, who was an exciting signing for Die Mannschaft but didn’t quite gel with the German squad and was released after the tournament.
Now it seems that Havertz will be handed a chance to impress for Leverkusen next season. He has impressed the coaching staff at the training ground and looked sharp in a full international debut. The centre forward is also a goalscorer for Leverkusen having scored two goals this season. If there’s a good chance that Havertz could replace Rieder in the starting XI, then I believe Leverkusen would be wise to give the young attacker a chance. The young Turkish international has a lot to offer to any team in the German league and could become a great strike partner for Julian Nagelsmann in the years to come.
After a disappointing campaign in the Clausenstadionen, Kai Havertz will be hoping to make a big splash in the premier league club role next season. If he can retain what he has already achieved so far then there is no reason why Leverkusen shouldn’t be expecting many more goals this season from their promising young star. The fans are expecting big things from Havertz and I think they will be pleasantly surprised. I would expect Kai Havertz to score plenty of goals for Leverkusen in the coming years and challenge for the title alongside Thomas Henrich.
