Former Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has officially announced that he will no longer play for the German national team anymore. The midfielder, who currently plays for Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid, made the announcement via his official Instagram page and Twitter account following his country's exit from the UEFA Euros tournament.
Kroos will be retiring from the German team as one of their best-ever midfielders to play for then as he is also the third player with the most appearances for Germany. The midfielder was always a key player for Germany since during his days at Bayern Munich and continued to hold his spot as a regular starter for Germany even after moving from Bayern to Madrid in 2014.

Kroos has shared the pitch with some of the best German footballers ever, including Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Özil, Philip Lahm, Miroslav Klose, Thomas Muller, and a lot of other stars both past and present that have been a part of his journey in his international career with the German national team.

The midfielder says he would like to turn his focus to club football, insisting that he wants to start to become busier with Real Madrid in their quest to win more trophies in the coming seasons. In his announcement, Kroos thanked current Germany head coach Joachim Löw and also wished the incoming head coach Hansi Flick after the former Bayern Munich manager was announced as the man that will take over from the departing Löw.

Following Germany's exit from the Euros, Löw is expected to step down as the country's head coach and Flick is also set to be their new boss at the national team as he looks forward to preparing the team ahead of their World Cup campaign next year.
