FIFA World Cup: Kai Havertz man of the match photo after Germany eliminated is just cruel

This was the awkward moment that German star Kai Havertz was forced to pose with his Man of the Match trophy just seconds after suffering World Cup heartbreak.

The Chelsea striker scored twice as Germany came from behind to beat Costa Rica 4-2 in their final group game.

However, the 23-year-old and his teammates will still be on the next flight home after Japan secured a thrilling victory over Spain, The Sun reports.

That result left the Adian side top in Group E, while La Roja also advanced despite the setback ahead of Germany courtesy of goal difference.

Havertz only came off the bench in the 67th-minute for the four-time world champions in place of Thomas Muller.

But his quickfire double to fire his nation ahead from 2-1 down, albeit ultimately being in vain, was enough to earn him top marks from FIFA sponsors Budweiser.

And that led to him being forced to pose with his Man of the Match trophy looking completely drained.

Even though it must have been an agonising moment for Havertz, rival supporters found the picture and whole situation hilarious as they showed no mercy on Twitter.

One tweeted alongside a host of laughing emojis: “His face says everything!”

Another commented: “He looks over the moon haha.”
