Chelsea star Timo Werner 'made honorary Macedonian citizen' with hilarious fake ID card after horror miss for Germany

TIMO WERNER has been made an 'honourary North Macedonian citizen' with his own hilarious fake ID card.

The Germany striker, 25, fluffed his lines in embarrassing fashion to produce a horror miss on Wednesday.

His almighty blunder proved costly as Joachim Low's side lost 2-1 at home to North Macedonia – their first defeat in a World Cup qualifier since the 5-1 loss to England in 2001.

And it did not take long for one North Macedonian newspaper to rub in the mockery after a famous victory.

The photoshopped ID includes his name, a headshot picture of the striker, his Macedonian nationality and a child-like 'TW' scrawled in the signature box.

The date of issue was March 31, 2021 – the day of the match – and expires in ten years.

But one minor blip saw the artist knock a year off Werner with his date of birth recorded as March 6, 1997 instead of 1996.

Low's men were sniffing a winner with ten minutes left in Duisburg when Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan rolled the ball across for the incoming Werner.

The ex-RB Leipzig hero, on as a sub for Chelsea team-mate Kai Havertz, seemed to get his feet tangled up as he mis-hit a left-footer wide.

Werner stooped down in embarrassment and disbelief, holding his head in his hands – while North Macedonian players were visibly stunned.

It was another horror moment for the out-of-form forward, who has managed just ten goals in 39 appearances for the Blues since his £48million transfer.

And it got even worse for Die Mannschaft when Eljif Elmas fired a late clincher for the visitors.
