In the 34th minute of this evening’s World Cup qualifier between Germany and Armenia, Chelsea striker Timo Werner did something spectacular – and it wasn’t his goal, which came ten minutes later…
Serge Gnabry had the ball deep on the right-wing and picked out the penetrating run of Timo Werner with a lovely pass over the top.
Werner jumped up and played the ball into the path of Marco Reus with a jaw-dropping backheel flick.
The audacious attempt, which Werner somehow pulled pulled off in mid-air, bounced the ball towards Reus and the Borussia Dortmund man hammered the ball into the back of the net to make it 3-0.
