Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe has revealed that Mesut Ozil is the best player he has ever played with, while explaining what he believes to be the best goal he has ever scored and the craziest atmosphere he has played in during his short career so far.

Smith Rowe has played alongside superstars of the game at both club and international level, but Ozil - whose former No.10 shirt Smith Rowe now wears for Arsenal - stands above all others.

"Everyone knows how good he (Ozil) is, so I'd have to say him," Smith Rowe told GOAL while appearing on Simply The Best.

England international Smith Rowe answered a range of questions, including the best player he has ever come up against, the best match he has ever played in, and the best goal he has ever netted.

"It was in pre-season when I was 17 against Atletico Madrid," he said. "It was my first game with the first team, so to score was good."

While pre-season rarely offers the best atmosphere, Smith Rowe has played in some of the most iconic stadiums in the world, though one sticks out more than others in terms of the noise made by the crowd.

"It was at Anfield," he recalled of his times playing away at Liverpool. "The fans were crazy there. That's probably the biggest atmosphere I've ever experienced."
