Toni Kroos made a big announcement this Thursday after affirming his return to the German team for the Euro Cup 2024 which will be held in the German country.

Kroos retired after Euro 2020 where Germany was eliminated after losing 0-2 to England in the round of 16.

The German midfielder made the announcement with a post on Instagram where he stated that he returned after a request from coach Julian Nagelsmann and stated that the team can achieve great things at Euro 2024.

“Short and sweet people: I will play for Germany again in March. Because? Because the federal coach asked me to, “I’m in the mood and I’m sure that with the team in the European Championship, much more is possible than most believe at this moment!” wrote the Real Madrid midfielder.

In the comments of the Instagram post are players like Jude Bellingham who wrote “He’s back,” among others. Antonio Rudiger, a teammate in the national team and in Real Madrid, wrote “MAESTRO!”, excited about the return of the man who could be the captain of the national team.

Toni Kroos and his history with the German national team

His last game was on June 29, 2021 against England. Kroos has 106 appearances for the German national team and 17 goals scored. His journey with Die Mannschaft began in 2010, prior to the World Cup in South Africa.

Kroos, who before moving to Real Madrid had played for Hansa Rostock, Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern, started every game at Brazil 2014 where Germany was crowned world champion and scored two goals in the legendary victory. 7-1 against Brazil.

The Madrid player also experienced the disaster in Russia 2018 four years later when Germany was eliminated in the first round.

Asked about the possibility of Kroos returning, coach Julian Nagelsmann had said it was “an interesting idea.”

“As far as I know, he has a German passport and is invited to show his conditions. If you show your best version, I may call you,” said Nagelsmann on the “Sportschau” program.

Kroos could have his return to the national team on the next FIFA date in March when two friendlies will be played. One against France on March 23 and the second will be against Holland on March 26.
