Even though he never got on the scoresheet, direct involvement in three of goals earned Mesut Ozil the man of the match award against Greece.
Whilst Schweinsteiger struggled to recreate his form against the Dutch in the quarters, Ozil picked up the slack with a terrific display. A blend of controlled passes, non-stop movement and his vital contribution in three of Germany’s four goals, made the Real Madrid man the standout performer.
Ozil had a great chance to break the deadlock midway through the first half, but he fired a tame shot straight at Sifakis.
