Ozil - I'm excited about Wembley debut

Mesut Ozil will "give his all" to cap his first Wembley appearance with his first Arsenal trophy.

The Germany international has been in fine form since returning from injury against Hull City in April and is expected to start when Arsenal take on the same opponents in the FA Cup final.

For all his pedigree, Ozil has never played at the home of English football and he is looking forward to the experience.

"Everyone is aware that we can win trophies now and can repay the fans"

"I have not played at Wembley before and I am excited about the atmosphere, the stadium and what the pitch is like," he told Arsenal Player.

"In general, you play in many different stadiums and, once you get onto the pitch, it’s exactly the same everywhere. You just want to enjoy what you do and be successful. I’m really looking forward to playing at Wembley.

"It’s normal to be tense before a game. You want to give your all and that’s exactly the same case with a final. But the most important thing is that everyone is aware that we can win trophies now and can repay the fans. They have been excellent for the whole season and that’s also why I think we deserve to win this trophy."

Ozil has seven goals and 13 assists in all competitions since becoming Arsenal's record signing last summer, and he is satisfied with how his first season in England has unfolded.

"I think that, as a team, we have shown what we can do," said Ozil. "We had aims - we were determined to get fourth place and we knew that we had to give everything and concentrate on the issue.

"We lost important players through injuries and that contributed to us losing or drawing against teams at the top of the table. That’s how things are in football - sometimes you have injuries and setbacks.

"But that will take us further - we will learn through it and become more mature as a team. If you look at the whole season, we can be satisfied. We secured fourth place and played with confidence and now we stand in front of the FA Cup final.

"I am happy that I have contributed and that the games brought some positive results. It gives us confidence for the final."
