"He is just world-class now" - Michael Ballack impressed by Arsenal star at Euro 2016


Former Germany international Michael Ballack says Arsenal's Mesut Ozil has become a world class player.

The 27-year-old delivered the perfect assist to team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger to help Germany battle past Ukraine on Sunday night.

He was the Vitality Player of the Season at Arsenal at the end of the season after back-to-back positive performances in Arsene Wenger's squad.

"Players like [Mesut] Ozil are always selected in the team for a reason," Ballack told ESPN.

"He is just world-class now.

"The final ball from him was a dream for Schweinsteiger."

Ozil joined Arsenal in the summer of 2013 after Real Madrid accepted a £42.4million offer from the Gunners.
