Havertz heading to home European Championships

Kai Havertz is heading to a European Championship in his homeland after he was named in Germany’s final squad for Euro 2024.

Kai will end his first campaign as a Gunner with the chance to represent his nation on home turf, as they seek their first triumph in the competition when they won Euro 96 in England.

Having qualified automatically as hosts, Germany’s preparations for the tournament saw them dispense with the services of Hansi Flick in September after a poor run of form stemming from a group-stage exit at the 2022 World Cup.

Julien Nagelsmann has stepped in and won three of his first seven matches at the helm, and has selected an experienced squad that includes Toni Kroos, fresh off a fifth Champions League success - this tournament will be a swansong for the most successful German footballer ever.
