Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react to star midfielder Mesut Ozil’s performance for Germany on Thursday.

The reigning world champions took on Poland on Thursday evening as they looked to build on their opening game win over Ukraine.

It proved to be a highly frustrating game for Joachim Loew’s side though as they struggled to create many clear-cut chances against their rivals.

Indeed, on reflection, Poland were unlucky not to seal another famous victory having created several big opportunities for themselves throughout.

One man who struggled for his best form was midfielder Mesut Ozil, who missed having a striker in the team as Mario Gotze failed to impress in the false nine role.

While many criticised his display, Arsenal fans offered a different perspective when reacting on Twitter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ozil, and indeed Germany, will now be targeting a win in their final game to secure progression to the knockout stages.

Their finals opponents are Northern Ireland, who will be full of confidence following their impressive 2-0 win over Ukraine, their first ever victory at a European Championships.

It will prove to be an interesting clash, with Michael O’Neill’s side sure to fancy their chances given what they saw from Germany against Poland.
