Mesut Özil Birthday - stats
A card that takes Özil back to his 2011-12 pomp this card has everything you for a genuinelly world-class attacking mid.
His Dribling is all high 80, low 90s and his Passing is similar.
He also has a generous amount of Pace to burn and his Shooting is up there too.
They only big let down about this card is his poor Physicality and Defending stats. Özil was never very keen to get himself about and this doesn't change. There is also the issue that he is currently at Fenerbahçe, drastically reducing the chemistry options.
