Ozil provides first assist in an Arsenal shirt…
Mesut Ozil, Arsenal’s £42m record signing, laid on a sweet assist for French teammate Olivier Giroud on his debut, giving the Gunners a 1-0 lead away at Sunderland.
The 24-year-old German playmaker received the ball wide on the left, controlling it beautifully – before slipping through the onrushing striker with a square ball.
Giroud duly finished, providing Ozil with his first registered assist in an Arsenal shirt.
No player in European football has assisted more goals than the brilliant German in the past five seasons, and Arsenal fans will be delighted to see the world-class playmaker hit the ground running.
