Germany pushing to bring Toni Kroos out of retirement to return for EURO 2024
Toni Kroos won the FIFA World Cup with Germany in 2014
In an attempt to persuade him to play in EURO 2024, Toni Kroos is being courted by the German national squad. Julian Nagelsmann, the head coach of Germany, has mentioned the possibility of Toni Kroos making a comeback to his country’s squad.
Antonio Rüdiger, a Germany international and Kroos’ Real Madrid teammate, disclosed that he is attempting to persuade the player to rejoin the national squad.
The World Cup winner from 2014 commented, “It took a lot of thought. He had considered it, and I hadn’t, so it took me off guard. That got me to thinking about it and gave me a response that isn’t appropriate for me right now.
The midfield virtuoso reached his breaking point after more than a century of appearances for Die Mannschaft, as their sad withdrawal from Euro 2020 was the last straw.
When he donned the German flag, Kroos promised that there would “not be another time.”

However, as previously mentioned, if the most recent information from the media is any indication, the 33-year-old may be about to retract his statement.
This follows a discussion with Julian Nagelsmann, the person in charge of spearheading Germany’s quest for its first European Championship victory since 1996.
Just in time for the summer’s European Championships in 2021, Germany summoned up two legendary members of their national team, Mats Hummels of Borussia Dortmund and Thomas Müller of Bayern. Maybe a different celebrity this time around?
Kroos might potentially get called up to the national team during the upcoming international window in March. But he will have to work for it in a midfield that is currently manned by players like İlkay Gündoğan of FC Barcelona, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka of Bayern.
