KAI HAVERTZ treated a young pitch invader to his shirt after starring in Germany’s 4-1 win against Albania on Sunday night.
The Chelsea playmaker broke the deadlock at the Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium as Hansi Flick’s side outclassed Edoardo Reja’s men.

Havertz, who started as a lone striker for the 2014 World Cup winners, swept home in the 15th minute from close range after getting on the end of Jonas Hofmann’s low cross.
Hofmann then restored Germany’s three-goal lead just after the hour mark to ensure the visitors finished the World Cup qualifying campaign unbeaten.
Germany, who finished nine points clear at the top of Group J, won nine out of their ten fixtures, scoring 36 goals and conceding just four times.
Following the full-time whistle, a young supporter darted on the pitch towards Blues star Havertz, who gifted him his jersey.
The fan then made their way back to the stands with security guiding the youngster back to their seat.
Social media was loving the incident, with one user positing a picture of the supporter receiving the top, captioning the post: “Kai Havertz makes a young lads night.”
Another messaged: “Armenian fan wanting a German shirt tells you everything about Havertz.”
A third added: “He’s getting the star treatment.”
Meanwhile one simply stated: “That’s my star boy.”
This fan remarked: “Class as usual Kai Havertz.”
Havertz, who has chipped in with four goals and two assists from his 16 Chelsea appearances this season, has lifted the lid on what it takes to win the Champions League.
The ex-Bayer Leverkusen ace scored the winning goal in the European Cup final against Manchester City last season.
He told Chelsea’s website: “You have to play like a family.”
