The five-time World Cup player would not include Arsenal's playmaker given his tendency to disappear in crucial matches.

Arsenal fans are not alone when they demand Mesut Özil to live up to his "superstar" status, as some of the player's compatriots are starting to ask him for more. Former midfielder and German legend Lothar Matthäus referred to Özil's performance in the latest Euro Qualifying matches, stating that there shouldn't be a place for him in the squad that battles to dethrone Spain next summer.

"There is no place for Mesut Özil. His achievements are mixed. Sometimes, he is world class, other times he disappears completely," Matthäus stated.

Özil played six of Germany's ten Euro Qualifying matches, scoring no goals for Die Mannschaft.

The German midfielder has played 70 games for the National Team, scoring 18 goals since being called up for the first time in 2009. Nevertheless, his contribution on the pitch is not as relevant as some experts want, leading Matthäus to ask Joachim Löw to drop him from the first-team.

"My line of front three looks like this: right (Karim) Bellarabi, left (Marco) Reus and central (Gotze)," the former German captain added.

Meanwhile, Mesut Özil has been included in Arsenal's squad that will face Watford this Saturday.
