Mesut Ozil starred in Germany’s victory over Italy in the Euro 2016 quarter-final clash yesterday.
We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to Ozil’s performance on social media.
Ozil had two major incidents. First the goal and secondly the penalty miss, both summer up perfectly below.

Ozil was arguably man of the match against Italy and scored his first game of Euro 2016 in the process. So much for not turning up in big games!
Mesut Ozil silences critics as he produces first goal for Germany. Congrats on your man of the match performance.

It really was a good goal.
Honestly that Ozil goal last night was class from start to finish. Great team goal

Interesting stat here. Germany have reached the semi final stage of every major tournament Ozil has starred in.

Another interesting stat here. Ozil and Alexis Sanchez seem to be the key for their respective national teams success but why have they failed to replicate the same for the Gunners.
Chile had never won Copa America until Sanchez joined Arsenal
Germany had never beaten Italy in a major tournament until Ozil joined Arsenal

Arsenal fans were over the moon following Ozi’s goal.
Arsenal Twitter celebrate Ozil goal more than any German

Most Gooners will however, probably he hoping Ozil is not put on penalty duty next season. The Germany international of Turkish origin has now missed four of his last five penalties in all competitions.
HECTOR WINS IT FOR GERMANY! Worst penalty shootout ever. Ozil should never take pens for Arsenal hahaha
