Arsenal's Mesut Ozil sends triumphant message on Twitter after sensational performance

Germany blew Italy away 4-1 with the Arsenal playmaker netting the fourth.

Germany let a two goal lead slip against England at the weekend, and took plenty of criticism in their homeland for doing so from the media.

They bounced back with a flourish against Italy on Tuesday night, reminding everybody why they are world champions and a team to be feared at Euro 2016.

They blew the Azzurri away, scoring four goals before Italy pulled back a consolation goal, in a dominant 4-1 win.

Arsenal record signing Mesut Ozil scored the fourth goal, and was delighted to play his role in the win, and end the international break on a high.


The result certainly will have been a confidence boost for the attacker, who now heads back to Arsenal where he aims to help them kickstart their Premier League title bid.

The Gunners are 11 points behind Leicester City, although have one game in hand, and have a home game against Watford this weekend, who beat them at The Emirates in the FA Cup earlier this month.
