Toni Kroos is still the first-choice midfielder for Germany.
Joachim Low insists that the Real Madrid player will not lose his place for picking up an injury during international break.
“Why should he fear for his place? He is a world-class player and is very important for this team,” Low said on Kroos during his post-match press conference.
“We know that we may lose players due to injury, but I am confident that we will have everyone available in May because we will need more than 11 first-choice players for the European Championship.”
Kroos has 101 caps to his name for Germany and 17 international goals. For the entirety of his career, he has been a consistent presence for both club and country. The 31-year-old has endured a difficult campaign with Real but is still performing at the highest level.
Germany dismantled Iceland 3-0 in their first World Cup qualifier for 2022. Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan, Kai Havertz and Leon Goretzka were all excellent in midfield. This does pose the question as to what could happen once Kroos returns.
Germany have plenty of young talents bursting onto the scene. With the dynamic qualities of the aforementioned quartet, Kroos could face some stiff competition come summer.
