Toni Kroos makes return to Germany ahead of Euro 2024

Toni Kroos will return to the German national team ahead of this summer’s European Championship, the Real Madrid midfielder confirmed on social media on Thursday.

Kroos, 34 – who retired from international football in 2021 – had revealed earlier this month that he was considering the move before Euro 2024, which will be hosted by Germany.

“Guys, short and painless: I will play for Germany again from March,” Kroos posted on Instagram.

“Why? Because I was asked by the national coach, I’m up for it and I’m sure that a lot more is possible with the team at the European Championships than most people believe!”
