Mesut Ozil struggling to be fit for the World Cup opener 0

Posted on June 07, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is struggling to be fit for Germany’s World Cup opener on June 17th against Mexico after picking up a knee injury in a friendly game against Austria last weekend.

The attacking midfielder scored in the 2-1 win over their neighbours. However, he was substituted on 76 minutes. Ozil has been training away from his Die Mannschaft teammates and missed Tuesday media day.

Reportedly, the 29-year-old is also still suffering from a long-standing back problem that saw him miss games for Arsenal last season.
