"How Toni distributes the ball and how he receives it is excellent," national coach Joachim Löw said. He's an engineer with a flourishing physique... I'm extremely happy with him who has made strides in the last few games.

Kroos replaced him in all three of Germany's Group B matches in the tournament finals. Löw selected Andrea Pirlo, Italy's playmaker, for the semi-final match against Italy. As Germany lost the match 2–1, the decision was heavily criticized.

In a 6–1 victory over the Republic of Ireland in Dublin, Kroos scored his first two international goals during Germany's 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign. In a 3–0 victory over Austria on September 6, he scored his team's second goal.

Kylian Mbappe 'will receive a mammoth PAY CUT ahead of joining Real Madrid' - as departing superstar  confirms he is leaving PSG in farewell video... but which two key figures did the France captain fail to mention?

www.dailymail.co.uk, May 11, 2024
Kylian Mbappe is reportedly set to take a pay-cut ahead of joining Real Madrid, after confirming he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain after seven years this summer on Friday evening. The France captain has long been linked with a move from Parc des Princes to the Bernabeu, and last summer refused to sign a new one-year deal to allow him to make the move to LaLiga as a free agent. Mbappe has since remained tight-lipped on his future destination, refusing to be drawn on his next move until the end of the campaign. 

Toni Kroos has yet to commit his future to Real Madrid and could be available for NOTHING, while Thiago's Liverpool contract is up after another injury-hit season... but which two Man United stars make it into our Free Agents XI ahead of this summer?

www.dailymail.co.uk, May 9, 2024
With the summer transfer window fast approaching, many top teams around Europe will be looking to bolster their squads, spending absurd amounts of money in the process.  Last summer, Premier League clubs spent £2.36 billion on players - a new record for transfer spending - and it's unlikely this trend of increased year-on-year expenditure will stop come June.  International tournaments are also notorious for inflating players' transfer fees if they impress, meaning this summer's Euros in Germany will almost certainly result in clubs shelling out huge sums of cash to acquire talent.
