Two of international football’s heavyweights met in Cologne this evening for a World Cup warm-up friendly – in what could be an eventual final at next summer’s tournament in Russia.
In truth, France were dominant throughout, with Alexandre Lacazette bagging a double, but his Arsenal team-mate Ozil was also doing his bit to keep the current world champions in it.
In the 56th minute, with Germany trailing, Ozil managed to pick apart the France defence before placing his through-ball on a plate for RB Leipzig forward Werner:

Not too shabby, eh?
With his contract running out next summer, a lot of prospective suitors are probably watching Ozil closely – would you want him at your club next summer on this sort of form?
