An under-performing German outfit shared the spoils with Poland in their Euro 2016 Group C encounter on Thursday. German playmakers Mesut Ozil and Mario Gotze failed to live up to their billing, while striker Arkadiusz Milik missed an array of chances for Poland.


It was a tough outing for a formidable Germany side as they played out a drab 0-0 draw with neighbours Poland. In a cagey display by both sides, the chances were few and far between. The best chances of the night, however, fell to Poland striker Milik, who miscued a number of them and failed to trouble German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Mesut Ozil, too, had a disappointing game and along with Milik, was targeted by fans on social media.

Here’s what the fans had to say:

Ozil’s teammate Mario Gotze was also slammed for another unconvincing display:

As reported in the Metro earlier, Arsenal are interested in bringing Ajax striker Arkadiusz Milik to the club. The Polish attacker has enjoyed a good run in Holland, scoring 42 goals in 67 appearances, and would certainly be an upgrade over an under-performing Olivier Giroud.

Milik made a flying start to the Euros by scoring Poland’s first goal of the competition against Northern Ireland. On Thursday however, Milik had a game to forget. He found himself on the receiving end of a number of clear-cut chances, but failed to capitalise on any of them.

Understandably, Twitter let loose on the Arsenal target:
