‘Mesut Ozil being blamed as usual’, ‘World Favourite Scapegoat’ – Arsenal Fans Defend Star Playmaker After Germany Defeat

Germany suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their opening 2018 World Cup Group F clash at the Luzhniki Stadium.

Hirving Lozano’s first-half goal was the difference between the two sides in an entertaining game in Moscow.

The defeat was Germany’s first defeat in the World Cup since they lost to Spain in the 2010 semi-final.

It was also the first time Germany have lost their opening game of the tournament since 1982.

Mesut Ozil started for the Germans and as is so often the case when a team he plays for does not win, he was blamed.
