We all know Mesut Ozil is something special, well, those of us paying attention at least.

In training ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League game against Qarabag in Azerbaijan, the German was filmed taking a penalty and he brought out his trademark trickshot, something he seemed to enjoy immensely as the ball hit the back of the net and he ran away giggling to himself.

The keeper’s face on the floor just adds to the humour value of the whole thing.

Arsenal go into Thursday evening’s game without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been left at home due to the political situation between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Aaron Ramsey also asked to be left at home as he waits with his wife for the arrival of their twins.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also miss out due to illness.
