The Arsenal playmaker scored his side’s third goal to send Arsene Wenger’s men on their way to a 3-2 victory over Swansea City in the Premier League at The Emirates.
Ozil celebrated his 28th birthday on Saturday and as well as helping Arsenal move up to second place in the Premier League after securing their sixth win in a row, the German’s team marked the occasion by putting together a video montage of messages from his team-mates past and present.
Among those to send him birthday wishes were Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and former Arsenal star Lukas Podolski.
The clip also features Ozil’s reaction to the video as it was played to him for the first time.
Ozil shared the video above on his YouTube channel and then tweeted:
Thank you to all my friends, teammates and of course my fans for your overwhelming birthday wishes. ☺😇 https://t.co/II6Do6pTzh
