Havertz reflects on his Covid-19 struggles and London life as he prepares for Wembley showdown

‘I haven’t really explored London a lot or as much as I would have liked to,’ added the 22-year-old.

‘It really is difficult to do anything in terms of leisure activities. Every three days you have an important match coming up, so there is precious little time to go sightseeing or go for a meal.

‘It looks a bit bleak but that’s the way it is. You come home from training and are happy about every hour that you can spend inside your own flat.

‘I do hope that later, London will give me much more joy, and I’ll have many, many good London experiences.’
