Why Chelsea star Kai Havertz is absent from Germany’s squad to face Liechtenstein

 

An explanation for the absence of Chelsea talent Kai Havertz from the German national team squad to face Liechtenstein this evening has been forthcoming online.

Another comfortable three points?

Hansi Flick is set to lead his side back into action shortly.

Having already booked their spot at next year’s showpiece, Die Mannschaft will play out their penultimate 2022 World Cup qualifier at the Volkswagen Arena.

A meeting with minnows Liechtenstein lies in wait, a matchup which, despite the lack of real importance for the hosts, Germany will be expected to emerge comfortably victorious from.

Havertz latest

Ahead of kick-off in Wolfsburg, as is customary, Hansi Flick unveiled his starting line-up a short time ago.

A whole host of recognisable names feature, with the likes of Manuel Neuer, Antonio Rudiger, Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus all included from the off:

As alluded to above, though, one member of Die Mannschaft’s setup absent from not only the nation’s starting line-up, but matchday squad altogether, is Kai Havertz.

In turn, concern quickly spread across not only the German fanbase, but also that of Chelsea this evening, with Havertz continuing to act as something of a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge.

But his omission versus Liechtenstein actually makes sense.

This comes with the 22-year-old, according to the reliable Bild, having been absent from both of Germany’s most recent training sessions, owing to a bruised thigh.
