Mesut Ozil is the best traditional #10 in the game today. He’s not a deep-lying playmaker, he’s not an inverted winger, he’s just exceptionally good at doing what #10s are supposed to do, create chances.
This video shows plenty of Mesut Ozil creating chances, but it also shows the other parts of his game that are just as exceptional, and perhaps more spectacular (the section on first touches is a football geeks dream).
I hadn’t seen any videos from this creator, Neymartive, prior to this one, but what a great video to see first. It’s superbly edited, it's footage well curated, and the soundtrack is an engaging break from the cliche EDM soundtracks you normally hear in such videos. All of which has the effect of watching Ozil play stand out that much more.
