AMMONNEWS - Football superstar Mesut Ozil, midfielder of both the German National Team and Arsenal FC, on Wednesday, joined HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, President of the Jordan Football Association and Founder and Chairman of AFDP, in a visit to Youth City in Amman to meet with the players of the Jordan U17 Women's National Team and attend their practice as the team prepares for the FIFA U17 Women's World Cup, which the country is hosting in September and October 2016.

"It''s great to have my good friend Mesut Ozil come and visit Jordan, he is such an inspiration to so many people, and he got to see first hand how football can be a positive force for young refugees. I'm also glad he gave a massive boost of encouragement to our U17 Women's National Team who are preparing to take part in FIFA Women's World Cup," Prince Ali noted.

"When my friend Prince Ali suggested to me to visit the Zaatari camp, I immediately said yes, I cannot say more than that it was a moving experience for me to play football with these kids here today," Ozil commented.
