German star midfielder Mesut Ozil has become another member of the team to join the injury list. But he hinted his fans to return before the FIFA world cup Russia 2018 to defend the title once again in Russia.
Ozil was not a part of Arsenal rampage victory over Burnley yesterday. Arsenal showed a fantastic football encounter against Burnley scoring 5 goals and not conceding any.
According to Ozil, he thinks that it will take some time to recover from his injury, but there is enough time left for the kickoff and he will surely be fit for the occasion.
Just five weeks to go for the start of the world cup, Ozil joins Manuel Neuer and Jerome Boateng in the injury list, a big reason to worry for German coach Joachim Leow. The three stars are facing a race against time.
German Goalkeeper Injured Since Last September
Considered to be one of the best goalkeepers of this era, Manuel Neuer has not played since last September, it is reported that he is suffering from a fractured foot. No doubt about the immense contribution he had in the previous world cup and German fans are too worried about the situation.
Another star center defender Boateng also injured his groin in an encounter with Real Madrid in UEFA champions league semi-final, thus it is a tough time for German coach Leow to publish his squad on 15th May as his team his surrounded by injuries of so many players.
The situation suggests that the three German ace Neuer, Ozil, and Boateng are likely to be named for the mouth-watering world cup, but before that, they are going to face a fitness test where they need to prove their best to ensure they are fit enough to get a pass for the FIFA world cup Russia 2018.
