It looked like it wasn’t going to be Ronaldo’s night after the Real Madrid star was forced to come off after suffering a knee injury early in the first half.
Ozil was part of the Germany side which went out in the semi-finals. The 27-year-old ended the the tournament with one goal and one assist. Germany were eliminated by the hosts France by a 2-0 scoreline.
The 27-year-old is currently spending his summer break in Los Angeles and will join Arsenal’s pre-season training camp later this month. Ozil finished last season as the leading assist provider in the Premier League (19) and was name Arsenal player of the season.
