Screen+Shot+2013 10 19+at+22.01.32 Mesut Özil Tweets surprise about scoring his first ever headed goal for Arsenal v NorwichMesut 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?!
