Mesut Ozil: You want to win the biggest tournament in the world


Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil revealed that days were needed to realise he won the World Cup with his German team-mates.

Joachim Low's men dominated the competition in Brazil but needed a Mario Gotze late goal to battle past Argentina with Ozil describing the win as a dream.

"You don't really take it in at first, even in the days after," the German told Arsenal's official website.

"As children, the whole team dreamt of that moment. You want to win the biggest tournament in the world and when you have the opportunity to do that, everything must fit.

"That's happened with us in the summer.

"When I had the trophy in my hands, there were lots of emotions because you develop and work for four years - first to qualify and then to be at the tournament.

"But the feeling of winning it was incredible."

The midfielder knows what it means to win one of the world's most important trophies and Arsenal fans will be hoping the 25-year-old will now help the Gunners win important titles for the club.

"We did it and there were so many emotions attached with achieving that," added Ozil.

"After the final, we celebrated with the fans in Berlin and that was amazing. I've never experienced goosebumps like that and I'm definitely really proud."
