Özil hopefully passed on the secret formula to winning World Cup's to the US, seeing as Germany's national team did not qualify for this year's tournament. If not that, then hopefully he at least passed on the secret to winning Rihanna's adoration, which is equally valuable.
FIBA World Cup play begins in Spain on August 30, when the USA takes on Finland in the preliminary round.
