Mesut Ozil was on the losing side following Germany’s 3-2 defeat against England in Berlin last night.
We took to social media to take a look at what fans made about Arsenal star Mesut Ozil’s performance on the night.
Ozil was the talk of the town going into the clash and featured on the front cover of the match day programme.

The lure of Ozil was so intense that some Arsenal fans even switched national team allegiance to back their man against their own country.

It was not all praise however, there were quite a few fans that were less than impressed with Ozil’s performance on the night.
Only Mesut Ozil could be as equally invisible and ineffective for both club and country.

The general theme of the Ozil critics was the World Cup winner not playing an influential role in the game – despite providing an assist for the opening goal.
Dele Alli missed an open goal. Mesut Ozil missed a whole match

Ozil did however win the Germany player of the award for the fourth time which went down well with Arsenal fans.
Mesut Ozil has won German player of the year 4 times.
And that my friend is why he's better than payet

Eric Dier was given the role of marking Ozil and not only fulfilled his role adequately but also scored the winning goal.
