Mesut Ozil - Arsenal's True Gunner

Mesut Ozil continues to be a guardian angel for Arsenal. In the match against Bournemouth, he played a key role in the attack and scored the opening goal for his team.

Should Wayne Rooney Start For England?

This will be a controversial topic for some as Wayne Rooney is the national captain and has been a fixture in the England starting eleven since Euro 2004. He is also the joint England leading goalscorer after drawing level with Sir Bobby Charlton on Saturday.
