Ozil has proved it time and time again why he is a midfield genius. With his passing, a very high understanding of the game, experience and maturity, he has been a key to winning for all the sides he has played with.
The reigning World Champions advance to the round of 16 high on confidence, and with their midfield and forward line synchronising brilliantly, they will be a threat for any team in the tournament.
