Mesut Ozil has always been an essential part of a team. Be it the English Club, Arsenal, or his home team Germany. He has a Golden Ball award nomination to his name, and was compared to football legend Zinedin Zindane by his former manager, Jose Mourinho.
In addition to that, he has 86 matches with own home team, Germany in which he has scored a total of 22 goals. He’s presently having an injury, but he insists that he will be in shape and make an appearance for the upcoming World Cup.
We are to see if that happens, as it could tilt the favor of Germany significantly among sports bettors. For instance, even if you try out the brand new online casino games at Betway Kenya, you would see one significant scenario – that Ozil could bring in more people to support Germany and it’s prospects in the World Cup.
What makes Ozil special?
Ever wondered what is it about Ozil that makes him a show turner among fans and opposition alike?
Well, he adds in that strength the team needs to pull through the line, and it doesn’t matter whether he has played for the club or for the country, he has always been a difference and a morale booster for the side.
Germany – About the Team for the World Cup
Defendig champions Germany, which managed to qualify for the upcoming World Cup, will kick off the plays in Russia with a match against Mexico on 17th June 2018. Ahead in the Cup, they would also be facing Sweden and South Korea in Group F. Their performance at the last World Cup, which they won, puts a lot of hopes and expectations on them. Though so far, the Germany national football team sounds very positive about the recovery of it’s midfielder star Mesut Ozil.
On the other hand, his English Football team reaction doesn’t match up to his home team. There are Gunners (this is what Arsenal players are referred as) have openly talked about how Ozil gets to pick his battles, and leaves out the others in the name of injury. Earlier, ahead of the English Premiere League, he was left out of the squad complaining of a back injury and hence missed out the rest of the season. In addition to that, he has played only 25 out of the 58 matches of the club this season.
Irrespective of what the actual story might be, the Germany football is hoping for his recovery soon, since this recover comes with a timeline. With just about 5 weeks for the World Cup to start, Ozil joins the likes of Jerome Boateng and Manuel Neuer, in a race against time recovery to make it off the casualty list for the World Cup. Germany Coach, for now, would be announcing the final squad on May 15th.
This might seem tough time Germany since most of it’s star player are out on injury. 2014 WC winning goal scorer, Lars Stindl has been finally ruled out of this WC.
