The Video: Arsenal fans sweat on Mesut Ozil after the German is forced off by injury against Sweden
Arsenal fans are worried this Wednesday after marquee summer signing Mesut Ozil limped off during Germany’s 5-3 win in Sweden on Tuesday.
Ozil, playing on his 25th birthday, picked up a reported knee problem in the final 10 minutes of the World Cup qualifier after he pulled up following a seemingly innocuous challenge when tracking back a Swedish opponent.
Ozil immediately began hopping after tweaking his left leg, and moments later the Arsenal star was hunched over in pain as it became clear his game was prematurely over.
Worryingly for Gunners fans Ozil then slumped to the floor as he appeared unable to put weight on his leg, and seconds later the Arsenal playmaker was subbed for starlet Julien Draxler. Once hooked off the pitch, Ozil gingerly walked off the pitch straight down the tunnel and into the changing room for treatment.
Ozil is no a major doubt for Arsenal’s match with Norwich this weekend in the Premier League.
