Chelsea summer rookies Kai Havertz and Timo Werner both scored and provided assists in Germany’s thrilling draw against Switzerland in the Nations League.

Switzerland took a 2-0 lead over Joachim Low’s side in Cologne on Tuesday night, but goals from Werner and Havertz saw Germany tie.

Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry then put the hosts forward – Havertz provided the assist – before Switzerland scored a tying goal in added time.

Havertz, who made a £ 71million move to Chelsea this summer, said: “We came back after several setbacks and showed character.

“We are in the middle of a process and we are a young team. We will not let ourselves be deviated from our course and we will continue as we are.

“We need to defend better, but there were a lot of positives on the show tonight. ”

Werner, who Chelsea signed from RB Leipzig in July, added on Instagram: “There were a lot of good times today! But we still have a lot of work to do.

German boss Low said: “It was a very high intensity game. Both sides took a lot of risks, but there were also several mistakes.

“We started the game badly, but we showed real character to come back, which was good to see. However, we made a number of mistakes in defense.

“Our plan was to play with a certain element of risk, but we have to correct these mistakes. We fought to get back into the game.

“You can learn a lot from setbacks. We need to improve our communication and our instruction.

“When we go to the European Championships our goal is to go as far as possible, but reaching the semi-finals is the minimum goal.

“This team has a lot of potential. We need to correct some things, but I think there is something to be excited about.

Havertz and Werner will now return to Chelsea ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Southampton.
