German midfielder Toni Kroos has recently revealed that he will think about his international future after the next year’s UEFA Euro competition.
The 29-year-old Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has a successful career. Apart from achieving many successes for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, Kroos also played a crucial part for Germany to win the FIFA World Cup 2014. He was one of the ten contenders to win the Golden Ball of that tournament.
However, four years later, he had an awful experience in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, where the defending champions Germany were eliminated from the Group Stages. According to the speculations, Kroos was considering to retire from international football after that 2018 WC.
However, he has destroyed those speculations by continuing his international career. Recently, he has claimed that he will think about his international future after the UEFA Euro 2020.
Kroos recently told Kicker, “After the tournament, it’s a good time to think about it.”
Toni Kroos’ big goal is winning the UEFA Euro
Kroos is now eyeing to win the UEFA Euro 2020. He participated in the two previous UEFA Euro editions (2012 and 2016), and both times, his nation lost the semi-finals. Now, his big goal is to win the UEFA Euro.
He said about the European Championship trophy, “Of course, winning the title is a big goal.”
After the last World Cup, Germany had another disappointing performance in the inaugural UEFA Nations League (2018/19). Fighting in the Group 1 of League A system along with Netherlands and France, Germany finished in the last position. They failed to win at least one match in that edition as they drew twice and lost twice in that tournament.
However, Kroos has claimed that their playing style has improved since the 2018 WC.
He claimed, “Even in the Nations League, which is not the most important competition, there was a certain change in our playing style, even if it wasn’t reflected in the results.”
They have proved it in the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying where they have won all their first three matches.
He has also admitted that they need to overcome the lack of experiences ahead of the UEFA Euro 2020.
