toni kroos

Germany's midfield is already filled with big names, but Toni Kroos is a class apart. The Real Madrid midfielder is well known for his deadly pace and passing skills. Despite a lean 2017/18 season, he will look to find inspiration from the 2014 World Cup where he was instrumental in Germany's 7-1 thrashing of Brazil.
