Mesut Ozil scored his first goal since leaving Arsenal in January 2021 on Sunday against Adanaspor.
Ozil scored the only goal of the game in the Yellow Canaries 1-0 victory over the newly promoted side.
The goal was simple enough; Ozil scored a tap-in in the first half.

The game was the Yellow Navy-Blues first of of the season.
The goal was Ozil’s first since February 2020 when he played for Arsenal almost 18 months ago.
The goal came in the Gunners 4-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League.
The playmaker failed to really make an impression after joining Fenerbahce in January providing just a single assist in 11 appearances.
He also missed two months due to an ankle injury he picked up in the draw against Antalyaspor.
Ozil has another two-years remaining on his Fenerbahce contract.
The 31-year-old’s goal moved the Istanbul giants into 5th place after the opening game of the season.
Fenerbahce will face HUJ next on Thursday 19 August in the Europa League following by a game against Antalyaspor on Sunday 22 August.
