Mesut Özil Tweets surprise about scoring his first ever headed goal for Arsenal v Norwich
Mesut Özil took to Twitter after Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Norwich and still seemed surprised to have scored a header.
Özil ran from deep to connect to Olivier Giroud’s cross just before the hour mark to make it 2-0 Arsenal, with a goal that effectively killed off Norwich.
During his time at Real Madrid, Özil did not score a headed goal and according to the usually reliable Transfermarkt website, the German playmaker has never scored a goal with his noggin before.
So, Özil comes to England and starts scoring headers…
Can it get any better for Arsenal’s record signing?!
Below is GIF of Mesut Özil’s headed goal v Norwich plus a graph from Transfermarkt showing how the German usually scores his goals.
UPDATE: Mesut Özil’s individual highlights are now also below.
