Arsenal star Mesut Özil impresses for Germany yet again v Ireland [Individual Highlights]
- October 14, 2013
On the same weekend as Arsenal legend Robert Pires predicted Mesut Özil can guide the Gunners to the Premier League title, the playmaker was his usual impressive self against Republic of Ireland.
Playing behind Thomas Muller in his favourite number 10 role, Özil dictated proceedings and showed the calm quality that is becoming a staple of his play at Arsenal.
Against the Republic of Ireland, Arsenal’s most expensive player contributed 99 touches, 81 passes with 95% accuracy, 4 key passes, 4 long passes (all accurate), 2 dribbles, 1 goal and 1 tackle.
Özil’s goal on 91 minutes played was a quality chip over Republic keeper David Forde and once again showed his stamina to last late on in proceedings.
It will be intriguing to see whether Mesut Özil is utilised by Germany in their match at Sweden on Tuesday night, in the mean time Arsenal fans can lick their lips at the thought of seeing their record signing and Santi Cazorla in the same team.
