Mesut Özil teased the French team with a punchline before facing them tonight.
Tonight, the French team faces Germany for the semi-finals of Euro 2016. A big confrontation that might be the time to get revenge for the Blues, defeated in the World Cup two years ago by the Germans.

Aware of the strength and talent of the German team, Laurent Koscielny started the confrontation backstage with his Arsenal teammate Mesut Özil. And the least we can say is that the world champion is confident to the point of making fun of the Frenchies. Real Madrid's former quarterback revealed the conversation for the German newspaper Kicker.
"We were teasing each other. After the quarter finals I texted Koscielny to say that we are not Iceland. He replied that it will be big match in Marseille, for us and the fans. We are all looking forward to it. Of course, France can bank on the home support but, comparing the potential of both teams, I believe that we can beat them."
In addition to teasing the Blues, the lefty also mocked the Icelanders. Not sure that the Vikings will appreciate it. Be careful Mesut, you might get in trouble...
