B’Day: Mesut Ozil Turns Twenty-Two

It’s been a hell of a year for Mesut Ozil. A debut World Cup appearance in which he terrorised defences and humiliated England (a pastime that seems to be catching on, we note.) A big money signing for Real Madrid. Pouch-gate. Clown-shoes gate. And now, as our Mesut celebrates his twenty-second birthday, we can only worry imagine what kind of scandalous and exciting gates the next twelve months will bring.
Best wishes, Mesult. May all of your outfits be sensible. And definitely not green.
