Despite the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil being one of the best attacking and creative football players in the world, there has been an awful lot of criticism directed at him ever since he signed for Arsenal from Real Madrid back in the summer transfer window of 2013.
Arsenal have to make sure that we get all three points against Tottenham in the north London derby first, but with us in great form and the spuds having a torrid time you have to make us big favourites on Sunday. That would be a great start for the Gunners as we try to put the tradition of struggling during the month of November firmly to one side.
Well I know that Arsenal fans are used to getting bad news on the injury front, but this would really have been taking the biscuit and would have been arguably the worst piece of luck on that front to hit the Gunners for some time.
The chances of the Arsenal and France international star Olivier Giroud finishing the summer as the top scorer from Euro 2016 look to be gone after his international team mate Antoine Griezmann scored twice against Germany in the semi-final to put him three ahead of Giroud on six goals.
Not only did the Arsenal midfield star Aaron Ramsey help his national team Wales to achieve their greatest ever result in beating the top ranked side in the world Belgium to book a place in the semi-finals of Euro 2016, he was also the best player on the pitch and was deservedly awarded to Man of the Match award by Sky Sports and many other football experts.
Northern Ireland will need to leap-frog Poland and/or Germany in Group C tonight, or will more than likely face France in the first knock-out round of the tournament.
Poland take on Germany in tonight’s crunch group game, in which the winner will guarantee themselves within the knock-out stages.
The game will see the two neighbouring countries go toe-to-toe for the third time in recent years, having also been drawn in the same group in qualifying. Poland won their home encounter 2-0, while the Germans came away with a 3-1 home win also, leaving this tie wide open on neutral soil.
Most Arsenal fans would expect our great French manager Arsene Wenger to be tipping France to win the Euros this summer, especially as they are the favourites, they are playing in their home country, and they have the unstoppable Olivier Giroud scoring goals for fun in the warmups!
