Ozil in yesterday's FA cup encounter composed well to slot santi
cazorla's pass comfortably into the net before setting up Giroud for
the 4th goal. The performance against the team with the stature of
everton shows that ozil can be fantastic in big matches also. Many
critics have been saying he only performs against small teams, well he
certainly shut them up yesterday.
Now to the next game on the minds of all football lovers; Bayern
Munich vs Arsenal at the allianz arena, three first leg of which
ozil's performance was dismal. He could not track ball nor was he able
to make any meaningful contribution till the end of the game. The
final whistle was music to all the fan's ears as many were afraid of
bayern munich increasing the goal margin. That match has gone and the
second leg is in two days time.
The second leg presents a very good chance for mesut ozil to prove he
is a reliable player and what better place to do it than in his own
country and I front of some of the same people who booed him in the
national colours last week. This is ozil's chance to show he has the
class. Ozil is a master player, the kind of player that can throw a
killer pass from any where, the kind of player that can make assists
from any angle, the kind of player that can change the outcome of a
game for any team so in one word, he is a great player. But on tuesday
represents a good time for him to show his greatness and put a lock on
the mouth of his critics.
Many people including arsenal fans think the game is lost already,
they think there is no way Arsenal can go to Germany and defeat bayern
at home, but i say they are wrong. We did it once and we can do it
again. The only problem remains if we can get the result needed to
progress to the next round. Therefore the task test upon our game
changers to turn up on that day and i believe we can do it. We need
the team at its best and adding ozil to the line up will add diversity
and vision to the team.
Anyways, we'll know on tuesday whether we'll progress or not but i
believe we can. We just need to keep the faith.
