Mesut Özil makes everything look so simple, and despite Germany crashing to a shock 1-0 defeat against Ireland earlier this week, he has yet again gone viral with this clever bit of skill.
It’s not the most difficult piece of skill in the world by any means, but it’s Özil’s ability to sell the dummy which makes it come off so well.
His quick feet and misdirection leave Ireland and Everton’s James McCarthy slipping and sliding, and allowed the Arsenal man to burst away from him and into space.

Özil’s style appears so effortless, but he is a master at manipulating the ball. He makes fools of top quality players with his movement and passing, and when he’s at his best he’s practically unplayable.

He was really at his best against Manchester United, and hopefully he continues to show that form throughout the campaign. We are a far better side when he’s on form, and he makes the jobs of the players in front of him so much easier.
