Perhaps one of the brightest young talents in soccer today, Mesut Ã–zil has proved to be one of the indispensable heroes of speed on courts at the age of 21. As such, combined with the fact that Mesut Ã–zil had ran a historical soccer moment in Nike’s Mercurial Vapor VI, Ã–zil is one of the ten players selected to be reanimated for Nike Stadium’s Heroes of Speed campaign. The game changing soccer moment documented and reworked by Croatian artist Danijel Zezelj and sports illustrator Paolo Sabellucci is the game Ã–zil’s team, Werder Bremen played against Bayern Munich in 2008. In this game, Ã–zil scored the third goal before his teammates claimed fourth and fifth, helping them win the game against Bayern Munich 5-2.
Thus far, the players with their glorious moments rendered and ready to view include Didier Drogba, Ronaldo, Frank Rivery, Daniel Alves and Andre Arshavin. Head over to the Heroes of Speed site and enjoy the clips alongside an illustrated depiction of the winning moments. Enjoy!
