Arsenal’s star playmaker Mesut Ozil has taken to social media following Germany’s 2-0 victory over Ukraine yesterday evening.
Mustafi put Germany ahead midway though the first half. Ozil continued his impressive club form into the Euro’s and picked out Bastian Schweinsteiger with a perfectly weighted cross to double his sides lead.
The 27-year-old uploaded a picture to Instagram along with the caption, “Hard fought but successful start into the group stage against a difficult Ukraine team!”
Ozil maintained a passing accuracy of 88%, made 49 passes and created three chances.
The former Real Madrid star has enjoyed an impressive season winning the Arsenal player of the season award and proving the highest number of assists in the league (19).
Ozil is one of two Germany intentional players of Turkish origin in the side – the other being Liverpool midfielder Emre Can. Germany take on Poland in their next group game knowing a win will secure their place in the last 16.
