"I was really happy looking at the line-ups ahead of kick-off. All four of our players were in the starting eleven for their club. These matches at the highest level push every player forward,"

Löw said.

"It was an especially crazy evening for Kai Havertz, but also for Antonio Rüdiger and Timo Werner as well as their coach Thomas Tuchel. I congratulate them, their team and everyone at Chelsea for the Champions League triumph!

"It's a fairytale story for Kai to score the winner in the final and it shows his huge quality. This success will make our players even stronger as we head into the upcoming Euros. Obviously I would have loved to be congratulating Ilkay Gündogan too. We will pick him up as a squad."
