thumbnail Hello,

The Arsenal man, who is enjoying an extended break after winning the World Cup with Germany, showed off his not-so-impressive skills at a training camp in Las Vegas

Mesut Ozil has stepped up his pre-season routine by dropping in on the USA basketball team at their training camp.

After a gruelling season, which saw his performances come under question for both Arsenal and Germany, the midfielder has been granted an extended holiday by the Gunners following Germany's World Cup success.

The 'Dream Team' were being put through their paces ahead of their own international tournament, the Fiba World Cup. Unfortunately for Ozil, Germany did not qualify but the USA are tipped as one of the favourites.
