Kathmandu: Toni Kroos has decided to hang up his international boots following Germany’s Euro 2020 exit.
It has been more than 11 years since the Real Madrid star made his Germany debut, and he has since gone on to win 104 caps, scoring 17 goals from midfield, and playing a significant part in his country’s 2014 World Cup win.
But after a difficult few years for Germany, Kroos has decided to call it a day to concentrate on club football at the age of 31.
He made his senior team debut against Argentina in 2010 and played for Germany for 11 years. Although he wanted to play 109 games for Germany, he played only 106 games.
His wish was to retire, making Germany the Euro Cup champions, but his wish to add another title was not fulfilled.
Germany lost 2-0 to England in the pre-quarterfinals of Euro Cup 2020.
Kroos, who played 106 games for Germany, was a key member of the team that won the 2014 World Cup.
“I played 106 times for Germany. I will not play again next time, “he wrote on Twitter.” I had already decided to retire after this tournament. It is clear to me that I will not be available for the Qatar World Cup. ‘
Kroos has said he will focus on Spanish club Real Madrid for a few more years.
