adidas celebrates Mesut Özil’s unrivalled touch and vision in latest First Never Follows film

Herzogenaurach, 2nd July 2016 – Germany’s king of assists, Mesut Özil, stars in the latest First Never Follows film launched by adidas today, ahead of his country’s quarter-finals clash with Italy at UEFA EURO 2016 TM.

Özil once again proved himself to be a regular provider for his club with 19 assists in all competitions last season setting a new league record. He will hope to emulate that form this summer for his country as Germany look to become the first nation since Spain to hold both the FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO trophies.

The film is the latest in the First Never Follows film series from adidas and is told through the eyes of a young football fan. Özil has made assisting an art form for club and country during his career and has inspired fans worldwide with his touch, vision and ability to see passes that others cannot.

Özil, who has been wearing the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL since January, can be seen in the film wearing the new colourway of the world’s first high performance laceless boot, the boots he will be wearing this summer at the UEFA EURO 2016TM.
