The cycle of Toni kroos in the German team ended today, where the midfielder of the real Madrid posted on his social media that he was ending his international career at the age of 32. With this announcement, the player is now devoting himself to his club career in Madrid, where he represents a centerpiece of the midfielder. While the famous coach Joachim loew had also announced his departure a few days ago, after 15 years at the head of the Mannschaft, now his midfielder Toni Kroos, pillar of the German team, is following the same path.
Kroos leaves after glorious years in breeding
In selection since 2010, the player trained in Bayern Munich, is part of the golden generation, crowned world champion in 2014. During this competition, the midfielder will even score two goals in 2 minutes against Brazil (24 ‘and 26’), doubled the fastest in the competition, during the legendary beating inflicted by the Mannschaft on the host country (victory 7-1). He is part of the typical team for this World Cup and the next Euro in France, where he will see his team lose in the semi-final against the Habs.
His last meetings with Germany were less successful. In a team in full reconstruction, the men of Joachim Löw lose during the group stage in 2018, and come out of the Euro in the round of 16 against England last Tuesday. With 106 games since 2010 to its name, Germany says goodbye to its midfield leader, author of 17 goals.
A career now focused on Madrid
As stated in his post, the player aims to focus on his club, Real Madrid, who, having recorded the departure of Sergio Ramos (and soon Varane), face new challenges for the seasons to come. Undisputed holder in the Merengues, the departure of Ramos could benefit Kroos from the captaincy.
