Arsenal duo score in Germany win

Published Add your comment

Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil and defender Per Mertesacker were both on the scoresheet on Tuesday night as Germany recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Faroe Islands.

Mertesacker opened the scoring midway through the first half with a close-range tap-in, while Ozil doubled Germany's advantage in the final 15 minutes from the penalty spot.

Thomas Muller added a late third to leave Germany on the brink of qualification for next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

The sight of Ozil scoring for his national team will no doubt excite Arsenal supporters, most of whom are still emerging from disbelief after the club smashed their transfer record to sign the former Real Madrid star.

The 24-year-old was signed for a fee of £42.5m - and is expected to make his Gunners' debut against Sunderland this weekend.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had been under pressure to make a big-name signing all summer, before pulling off arguably the Premier League's most impressive coup on deadline day.
