The attacker played a role in the Blues' charge to secure the European cup with a brilliant performance against Manchester City.

The winger was not named in the starting eleven for the night's encounter but was introduced into the fray at a point, becoming the first-ever American men's player to feature in the finals of the competition.

Congratulatory messages have been pouring in for the players and staff of Chelsea Football Club after concluding an extraordinary European campaign with a top performance in the ultimate encounter. The Blues held their ground to keep Manchester City at bay even after having center-back Thiago Silva substituted following a groin injury. Not long after Kai Havertz scored the all-imporant goal of the clash for Thomas Tuchel's men before the half-time break.

With no recognized striker and a defensive midfielder in the side, City failed to get back into the game and were equally unable to deal with the midfield battle that had been won by a mile by N'Golo Kante.
