Germany beat Northern Ireland 1-0 in their final Euro 2016 Group C game to book a place in the next round.
Mesut Ozil started for Germany and put on a brilliant display for the national team but was unable to add to his assist tally.
We took a look at how Arsenal fans responded to Ozil’s display on social media.
Fair to say Ozil gave a pretty outstanding performance. The Germany international of Turkish origin did not provide an assist but he did complete 98 percent of his passes and create six goal scoring opportunities.
Mesut Ozil :
6 chances created
98.5% pass completion

The Arsenal playmaker was easily the most impressible player on the field and played arguably his finest game in the tournament so far.
This pretty much sums up what Gunners supporters made of his display.
If Mesut Ozil lost his skills, eye for a pass, footballing brain, dribbling, and passion he'd still be the best CAM in the world

On another day Ozil would probably have racked up a cricket score in terms of assists and even found the back of the net himself.
That pass from Mesut Ozil was ridiculous, deserved a goal. #NIRGER

Ozil regularly gets stick from sections of the press – not all deserving – which did not go down well with fans at all.
98% pass completion rate for Mesut Ozil, Germany's MOM for most.
Yet @BBCSport said he "wasn't doing enough".

Ozil was widely praised across social media.

Ozil was even rated as the best player in the world.
Mesut Ozil the best player on the pitch by a country mile.

Mesut Özil = best attacking midfielder in world football.

Some even claimed Ozil was carrying Germany.
Mesut Ozil is carrying the best international team

Ozil is sometimes accused as being lazy defensively but that was not the case yesterday.
