Real Madrid Player, Toni Kroos has resigned from international football following Germany’s exit from Euro 2020.
Kroos’ declaration comes days after England’s 2-0 victory against Germany at Wembley and he says he wanted to focus more on Real Madrid and also on his family hence his decision to retire.
Kroos confirmed his international retirement on Instagram on Friday afternoon, July 2, writing:
“I’ve played for Germany 106 times. There won’t be another time.
“I would have dearly wished – and I gave everything again – that there would have been 109 internationals in the end and that this one big title, the European Championship, would have been added at the end.
“Mainly because I want to focus fully on my goals with Real Madrid for the next few years. In addition, from now on I will deliberately allow myself breaks that have not existed as a national player for eleven years.
“Thanks to all fans and supporters who carried and supported me with their applause and cheers. And thanks to all the critics for their extra motivation.
“At the very end I would like to say thank you very much to Jogi Low. He made me a national player and world champion. He trusted me. We have written a success story for a long time.
“It was an honour for me, doing it well – and good luck and success to Hansi Flick [Low’s successor as Germany coach].”
