Top News Kroos Come Out Of Retirement Ahead Of Euro 2024

Ahead of this summer’s home European Championship, Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos confirmed on Thursday that he would be rejoining the Germany national squad after three years of retirement.

The 34-year-old World Cup winner from 2014, Kroos, announced his retirement from the national team in July 2021 following Germany’s 2-0 loss to England at Wembley in the round of 16 of the 2020 European Championship.

After making his debut for Germany in 2010, Kroos amassed 106 caps. In addition to a lengthy collection of club championships from his time at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, he has also won five Champions League titles.

Guys, quick and painless: From March onwards I will again be playing for Germany,” Kroos said in a social media post.

“Why? Because the national team coach asked me, because I want to and because I am certain that there are more things possible with the team at the Euro than most people believe at the moment.”

The European Championship, which takes place in ten cities starting on June 14, is being hosted by Germany.

Berlin will host the final on July 14, but the hosts have had recent form issues.
