Toni Kroos has said that unpredictable Germany can win Euro 2020

Toni Kroos has said that the unpredictable nature of the current Germany squad can propel them to success at Euro 2020. The Germans faced a shock group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup but since then, the team has gone through a major rebuild with a number of senior players dropped from the national pool.

Speaking to German news outlet Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger, Kroos said that he has a very good feeling for the forthcoming European Championship, given the current makeup of the squad. He added that the likes of Leroy Sane, Julian Brandt and Serge Gnabry could be pivotal to the team’s success when the continental competition returns next year.

He said: “I have a very good feeling for the European Championship 2020. Our goal is still to dominate games, but we are looking more purposeful the way we go forward. Especially in attack we have players who can cause teams problems, like Sane, Brandt, Gnabry. That makes us more unpredictable and better than at the World Cup.”

Kroos was one of the bright performers during a disastrous World Cup campaign for Germany last year and that has helped him to retain his spot. Nonetheless, he cannot afford to rest on his laurels, considering Joachim Loew has been clearly indicated that he won’t be sticking with players, who showcase a drop in performance levels.

Elsewhere, Kroos has committed his future to Real Madrid on a four-year deal amid the speculation over his future. When quizzed about the plans after 2023, Kroos suggested that he may decide to retire from the game rather than pursuing a move to China, United States, or Qatar. The German has been with Los Blancos for the past five seasons and during this period, he has won three Champions League titles and one La Liga crown.
