Kroos is straight up crushing it this season
Looks like a new man this year. Playing out of his mind so far.
Really hope he stays. Been absolutely incredible
Hope he extends, god pls
He literally playing with a clear and peaceful mind, no world cup nothing to prove. I guess this is his prime season
??? Have you watched Kroos in the past 5-7 years?
How can u get offended by this if he's clearly joking hahaha
He just aged like wine
> I guess this is his prime season
> crushing it this season
[Are we to understand that he did not crush it the past seasons?](https://youtu.be/d2BuP7-m5Ww)
After having to be subbed out for Cama in all those big CL games last season and not looking up to it, dude’s come back with fire
He's just too good man.
He's so good he just flies under the radar but he's been one of the best midfielders in the world for the past 10 years easily
I'll even go as far to say Kroos > Zidane over their careers. Peak maybe Zidane but the consistency Kroos shows edges it for me
Different kinda players , can’t compare apples to oranges
Fr, Zidane was like a maestro. While Kroos is like the most talented violinist. 2 different things.
Kroos is the orchestrator or the conductor
Kroos plays in a much more withdrawn position, it’s always easier to look tidy, composed and reliable when you’re deep in midfield. When you operate in the final third like Zidane, the margins are razor thin and there is never any space. That’s where the wizards conjure something out of nothing but the risk of losing the ball is also much higher.
What a strike.
Sign that contract Toni
He hit that so fuckin good, if he retires amma lose it
What a sweet hit
This is the best season of his career so far he’s been insane
For sure, he’s going out with a bang. He easily could have played World Cup given the form he’s in.
Would've been on the bench tho
If we had to play aliens to save our lives he would start first in midfield
Samsung ad vibes
If we had to play aliens to save our lives I would hope we could all set aside our differences and send this Madrid team
Saying he wont start doesnt mean he is bad, jesus christ. He hasnt played in the NT for years and International matches depend on players having a rhythm with each other.
I agree, idk why the downvotes
reddit is weird like that sometimes :D
Because if he hadn't retired from international football he would have been getting matches with the NT? The comment is irrelevant.
Nope, I think he would have started alongside Kimmich.
He did the last euro.
Yeah but last Euros Goretzka just came back from injury. I didn't say he shouldn't play, I just believe that Flick wouldn't have broken up the Bayern duo of Goretzka and Kimmich
Nonsense, Kroos was an absolute pillar of the german NT for as long as he was active. He was miles ahead of Goretzka and arguably even Kimmich, who got shifted out wide against England, to fit both Kroos and Goretzka in the center.
You're getting downvoted for speaking facts lol
Yaa I mean I’m not advocating that he should be on World Cup team. He’s happily retired from German team, we will agree with Kroos decision
While I do agree he has been insane, it's definitely not the best season of his career so far. That said, let's see what the rest of the season holds
I think Kroos has had better complete seasons but these few months alone are the best I’ve seen him play consistently.
I don’t think he’s at his peak as a player but performance wise he’s been superb for the entire season. Long way to go but I’m giving this year the edge…so far
I was actually looking at his stats on Fotmob and it seems the season to beat is his 2016/2017 season
Great goal tag, if not this one
They just need to be fast, they don't seemingly have the time for the tags
For you, this is a banger.
But for u/alexinup this is potentially 5k karma. Cut him some slack, man has to feed his family. Priorities.
Karma farmers. It ain't much, but it's honest work.
I don’t get what rm players have to do to get that great goal tag. The standard for us is zlatans bicycle kick vs england
first of all, i agree that this is a great goal, but there are two things here:
1. uploaders are free to editorialize a bit “Great Goal”, “Golazo”) etc in the post title. A lot of them don’t do this no matter how good the goal (karma race, can’t be arsed, etc)
2. Mods can add a great goal flair tag after the fact (which replaces the “Media” tag). Usually this takes a little bit to happen since they are busy and don’t necessarily watch the highlight straight away
Who could possibly care about this
I obviously thought Toni Kroos, one of the most decorated footballers and one of the best midfielders of this generation could finally be proud of his career for getting a great goal tag on this sub.
Fucking banger and a half
Look at the angle from behind the goal. Caught is so well and curled it back into the goal.
WHAT A STRIKE
have a fucking game Toni Kroos
Germany seeing this
u/alexinup learn how to put a great goal tag on a RM goal already....ffs
What a volley
The annual Kroos banger
Used a rocket instead of a sniper this time
That's a tap in for him tbh
Kroos = Great goal
I got my girlfriend a Tony Kroos jersey and she loved it. It’s the purple one and we got it at the Santiago Bernabeu. Of course I got my boy Modric. I’m gonna send her this GIF.
You should get a Casemiro one for yourself at this point if you haven't already.
Please don’t retire, Toni!
Kroos is gonna have to retire at 44 if he keeps playing that well
For a brief moment he looked like he might celebrate.
What a fucking shot
Annual kroos banger is here my god
He’s been our best player so far this season tbh and probably the best midfielder in the world along with kdb
Bangers. German sniper
Fucking hell, what a shot
What are we gonna do without him
Kroos is so fucking good this season. Truly back to his best
Kroos is undoubtedly one of the Greatest players of all time and possibly the best in his position.
Toni Kroos on some other shit this season, he’s incredible
once a sniper, always a sniper
Love how him and Alaba are long lost buds. Gets me pumped
What a smooth, sweet hit. Man, he moves beautifully. Beautiful goals from this man.
Toni only scores bangers!
Yearly kroos banger
Tonnnniiii kroooss aging like fine wine.
[ Kroos control. 😎 ]
SIGN THE FUCKING CONTRACT TONI
Missing great goal tag but with Kroos its a given I guess
An inspirational moment from Toni Kroos
Kroos is elite
Every time i see that he scored a goal i automatically assume its from outside the box
Struck that so well
What a fucking hit. Can't believe he even got to it on the volley
Dont retire Kroos
A true Beamer. I tuned in after the Utd game and my pa and I were blessed to witness a volley of true brilliance.
This kid has a future in the game.
What a fucking matador. This is the purest strike I've ever seen.
Great goal tag???
Hell of a strike
OH MY FUCKING GOODNESS
WHAT A FUCKING HIT
What a hit!
Average Kroos goal
Alaba interrupting the trademark left hand celebration. Shame.
Kroos guided missile
WE CANNOT REPLACE HIM
What a fucking hit, love u Toni
Golazo tag where?
Sad that he won't go to the wc
Good for us. He’ll be fresh and rested.
Why is there never a tag of "Great Strike" for these absolute stunners, lol.
What a banger
German bazooka =====D
That must have felt so fucking good coming off his boot
That's a really nice shot.
What a hit
A true sniper. Still heavily regret letting him go
No player like him
Annual Kroos Banger
Where is the “Great strike or great goal” flare?
Good thing we're not taking this guy to the world cup, he's definitely worse than Adeyemi/Havertz
Kroos retired from International Duty after 2018 WC. Flick asked him to come back but Toni declined.
This season he’s playing out of his mind. I think this is last season and he wants to go out with a bang.
He’s way more mobile, faster than usual, intercepting way more, tackles, more daring forward passes and what not.
Definitely his best season so far with Madrid.
I'd have loved to see him do it for Germany one more time, sucks that Flick didn't. I've watched quite a bit of Real this season and he's definitely still got it, just like Luka.
I mean, Flick tried to get Toni to rejoin afaik but Toni wanted to stay retired from the NT. Can't exactly kidnap the man...
Thought he retired
Its gonna be sad times when Antonio and Luka retire. We’ve been so spoiled by them.
Yaa but I'm sure Flick will be brilliant for you guys. I love that guy. If he wants a next job, I'll love to have him at Madrid.
Clear of Pirlo eh
Dunno about that
Where's the fucking tag
What the actual.
Sniper, this is what he does.
Goodness what a shot.
Love those type of goals
Sheesh what a banger
That was sooo satisfying.
Sign the contract Toni
Well obviously if hes in the German squad....
Sign that contract man
ANTONIO EL ROMPEREDES KROOS
Yearly casual Kroos missile banger.
Can't even be mad about that one
What a fuckin goal
Carletto popping that eyebrow for sure
Obligatory Kroos Missle
I have never seen a team absorb pressure well and then stay as patient as RM while creating chances. To do this without Benzema takes it to another level. Yesterday, it was a master class by Kroos, Modric and Tchouameni on controlling the midfield. They are so aware of each other's positions and the opponents positions. They adapt accordingly without losing shape. I like how Kroos and Modric move closer to the fullbacks when they are being pressed while Tchouameni moves in front. Iirc, Kroos and Modric did the same when Caesmiro was around as well. As a result, imo, they are not entirely dependant on Caesmiro's defense traits. You can change personnel but the identity of the team stays the same. Credit to Ancelloti and the team. Well deserved win.
Where is the great goal tag?
Where is the (great goal) you fucking cowards!
It's one guy
Where is the great goal tag? c'mon
I always love seeing Alaba’s reaction, such a great teammate! Especially when it’s with Kroos!
