Video: Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil Sets Up Thomas Muller For Germany With Brilliant Touch

Germany got their first 2018 World Cup qualifier at home off to a flyer tonight, thanks to an early Thomas Muller goal, but the Bayern Munich man was helped in no small part by a beautifully deft touch by Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil.

The world champions opened the defence of their crown with an emphatic 3-0 victory away to Norway on matchday one, but tonight’s opponents the Czech Republic looked like an altogether trickier prospect.

However, there was little to fear for the hosts, with their class telling early on.

After just 12 minutes, the Germans launched a blistering counter attack, with the ball eventually finding its way to Borussia Dortmund man Mario Gotze.

He picked out Ozil in the area, who proceeded to brilliantly lay it on a plate for Muller:

It might not be the flashiest assist you’ll ever see, but the understated brilliance of it sums up everything that Mesut Ozil is about.

What do you think of it?
