“Kai Havertz, my team-mate at the moment, is actually in the video.

“Not many people know this, but he is the one that grabs my face. I've spoken to him about it at training and we had a good laugh about it.

“He actually remembered it as well. It was funny. Now he's going to get exposed now, so everyone is going to know. But great memories to score for your country.”
