Ian Wright has slammed Chelsea forward Kai Havertz for his performance in Germany’s 2-1 defeat to Japan at the World Cup.

Havertz looked to have put his side 2-0 just before the break after tapping home Serge Gnabry’s cross but the goal was ruled out with the 23-year-old clearly offside.

Analysing the disallowed goal for ITV, Wright was incredibly frustrated with Havertz’s positioning, exclaiming: “Havertz, just stay where you are!

“The ball is coming across there. You don’t need to go. If he just waits, just stay there you’ll be able to slide in and get it.

“The thing is you could see how much close he was to the goal. I can’t believe this is happening at this level!”
