There was some good news for Arsenal fans on Saturday as Mesut Ozil returned to training with Germany.

The 28-year-old had been suffering from a calf and thigh problem but he had no sooner overcome that than he picked up the back issue.

At the time when the DFB put out an update about his back, it didn’t sound like it was anything serious. The fact that he’s returned to training so quickly, therefore, is great but not overly surprising.

That being said, Joachim Low isn’t planning on taking any chances with him for their game against Azerbaijan.

 “Every player is fit. The only doubt is Ozil,” Low said.

“We’ll wait until after our last training session to decide on him.”
