DID YOU KNOW ?

Özil was born in Gelsenkirchen, a working class city in western Germany, to a family of Turkish immigrants.

On June 29, 2009, he was the catalyst in a 4-0 win over England during the U-21 European Championship final.

He is the first full-blown German international to recite Koran verses before kick-off.

His superb technique is paired with an element of unpredictability rarely seen in the modern game. He dribbles past his markers with ease, he scores plenty of goals and sets up even more.
