Kai Havertz is here. Three connects Chelsea’s German wunderkind with London street footballer Jack Downer for a true test of tekkers. We’re talking keepie uppies, stepovers, Ronaldinho-style flickups, and around-the-worlds. Can Kai keep up with the outrageous skills Jack posts on his Instagram? Can he pull off his signature move, “spin magic”? What about a synchronized combo of skills straight from the streets? To understand that last one, you might just have to watch.
Panna meets the Prem as Jack learns about the first moves Kai perfected, how he’s getting on in London, and his first hattrick in English football (including a cheeky nutmeg on the keeper). In a clash of cultures at Cobham, the 21-year-old phenom opens up about his elusive playing style and the footballers who inspire him. Nonchalant as ever, Kai keeps it real when he tells us how social media influences his game, as well as his selectiveness when it comes to skilling. The talent is raw, the skills are five-star, and the chat is quality. #ConnectWith
