Kroos hits back at Matthaus: It'd be draining to look at every expert's ideal XI

Germany legend Lothar Matthaus hasn't picked Toni Kroos as part of his ideal starting line-up for Die Mannschaft for Euro 2020, but the Real Madrid man isn't concerned.

Kroos explained that what matters is that he is in Joachim Low's ideal XI.

"We have one or two experts in Germany and there will be more during the competition," he said on the 'Einfach mal Luppen' podcast.

"If I have to look at the ideal XI of each one then it would be really draining.

"I've been in the team for 11 years and I'm not the one who picks the line-ups.

"We should be happy that we have so many good midfielders right now. It wasn't always this way.

"Everyone can pick their ideal Euros team as they wish.

"I know what I can bring to the team."
