mesut özil and a multicultural germany

 
this article about multiculturism in germany caught my eye-- especially when it mentioned mesut! wish i caught this game.

"When Mesut Ozil, the star of the German side, scored against the land of his parents, he seemed almost embarrassed.

Born and bred in Germany to immigrants from Turkey, he was not going to gloat. He was not going to rub it in to the half of the 70,000 crowd who supported Turkey.

"It was fantastic for me to score in this match", he said afterwards. "But I made the spontaneous decision not to overdo the celebrations."
