#InternationalWerkself: Tah makes comeback for Germany

Germany successfully completed their final international fixture of the year: The team under coach Hansi Flick won 4-1 in the World Cup qualifier away to Armenia. Bayer 04 central defender Jonathan Tah produced an impressive performance in his first game for Germany in over a year.

The numbers of the 25 year-old Leverkusen player speak for themselves: Jonathan Tah, playing alongside Mönchengladbach’s Matthias Ginter in the centre of defence, stood out in his display over 90 minutes with a 100% success rate in challenges. In addition, he has a pass completion rate of 90%.

Werkself homegrown player nets opener

The first goal of the match in the Armenian capital Yerevan was scored by Kai Havertz (15'). The 22-year-old spent ten years at Bayer 04, developed into an international player of world-class calibre and is now in the Premier League at Chelsea.

The other goals were a brace from Ilkay Gündogan (45+4', 50 pen.) and one from Jonas Hofmann (64'). Armenia superstar Henrikh Mkhitaryan of AS Roma scored from the penalty spot on 59 minutes to make it 3-1.

Germany were the clear winners of Group J in the World Cup qualifiers with an impressive 27 out of a possible 30 points. North Macedonia are in the play-offs after finishing second in the group (18 points).

Hradecky and Co. still on the road

While the match in Arminia was the last game in the current international break for Tah and the other German players, several of his Leverkusen teammates are still on the road. Goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky and Finland will face France with Moussa Diaby. While the current World Cup winners are already certain of finishing top of Group D, Finland have to defend second spot.

Third-placed Ukraine are on the heels of Hradecky and Co. with two points less and they play Bosnia-Herzegovina at the same time. The two matches kick-off on Tuesday, 16 November at 20.45 CET.
