Mesut Ozil is among the Germany 23 man squad that will be representing their country in the 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP. The Arsenal midfielder took part in Germany’s friendly win over Austria and even scored but was later substituted in the 76th minute.
It is has been reported by Bild that Mesut Ozil has been unable to train for the past four days because of a knee injury which stopped him from featuring for Arsenal in its last matches of last season. The report says that the injury is still haunting him and he is likely to miss the opening match of Germany in the FIFA WORLD CUP in Russia when they taken on Mexico.
