Despite both Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil putting in a decent shift during the Euros, they also have something else in common: they’ve both missed penalties.

On Saturday, Xhaka missed a penalty for Switzerland against Poland. Unfortunately, this proved to be a massive blow, as the Poles then went through 5-4 on penalties, knocking the Swiss out.

Ozil’s penalty miss wasn’t that huge. In fact, it didn’t matter at all because Germany beat Slovakia 3-0.

The German’s could therefore relax about the miss enough to tweet about the ‘English influence’ on both players.

Of course, the tweet was clearly in jest and not meant to upset anyone. Xhaka’s not even played for Arsenal yet so there’s no deeper meaning behind it other than a bit of ‘banter’.
