Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil wishes Olivier Giroud & Laurent Koscielny luck
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil takes to his Twitter page to wish Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny luck in France's play-off
Mesut Ozil has taken to his Twitter page to wish Gunners team-mates Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny luck ahead of France’s clash against Ukraine on Friday night.
The Germany international, who is expected to line-up against Italy at the San Siro this evening, has already helped the three-time World Cup winners book their place in next summer’s tournament after topping their qualifying group.
However, Giroud and Koscielny must help France get past England’s group opponents Ukraine to seal their place in the World Cup afte reigning champions Spain finished ahead of Didier Deschamp’s men in Group I.
And Ozil hopes to see his Arsenal colleagues at the South American tournament next June.
Crossing my finger for Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny. Want to see you in brazil.

Earlier on Friday, Arsenal and Spain left-back Nacho Monreal described playing alongside former Real Madrid star Ozil as an “honour”.
“Personally, I think so. Mesut is a star and Real Madrid are full of stars. I didn’t expect Madrid to let him go,” Monreal told Marca.
“For us, it’s an honour to play with him.”
