Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has announced he is ready to play for Germany again after retiring from international football in 2021.

Kroos, 34, brought the curtain down on his 11-year international career soon after Germany’s 2-0 Euro 2020 defeat to England at Wembley in the last 16.

But he has remained integral to Real Madrid’s success and said on Instagram he had agreed to make himself available for selection for Euro 2024.

Kroos said: “Guys, short and painless: I will play for Germany again from March.

“Why? Because I was asked by the national coach, I’m up for it and I’m sure that a lot more is possible with the team at the European Championships than most people believe!”

Kroos, a World Cup winner for his country in 2014, is now expected to be included in Julian Nagelsmann’s squad for this summer’s Euros, which will be hosted by Germany from June 14-July 14.

Former Bayern Munich boss Nagelsmann succeeded the sacked Hansi Flick as Germany’s head coach in September last year.

Kroos, who made his full debut for Germany in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Argentina in 2010, has scored 17 goals in 106 senior international appearances.
