Kai Havertz said a dream came true for him on Wednesday when he scored his first goal for the German national team.

The Leverkusen starlet made it 2-0 to the Germans in the first half before the guests fought back to claim a 2-2 draw with two goals after the break.


"Serge gave a good assist for my goal. It wasn't difficult for me to put the ball in the back of the net. It means a lot to me to get my first goal for Germany. I dreamt of this moment as a kid, and now my dreams have come true," Havertz said after the game, as quoted by the German Football Association.

It was the 20-year-old's sixth appearance for 'Die Mannschaft'.
