Arsenal and Germany forward Lukas Podolski has backed his team mate Mesut Ozil to come good in the World Cup.
Mesut Ozil is set to start in a forward role for Germany, replacing Toni Kroos at the heart of the German side's team.
“Mesut has the quality. He is a world-class player and will bring us plenty of joy in the shirt,” Podolski said at Germany’s World Cup camp.
“You shouldn’t write him off, just let the boy play football. He is just the way he is.”
