Toni Kross prioritises trophies over personal milestones

Toni Kroos cares more about trophies than personal milestones.

The German midfielder won his 100th international cap in the 3-3 Nations League draw with Switzerland but confessed to being more concerned about winning silverware for club and country.

Kroos said after the match: "It was of course a special game for me. To have reached 100, that's a nice mark. But anyone who knows me knows that I care more about results and titles than appearances.

"But of course, 100 games is something nice. In the past I have played with incredibly good footballers and guys. I hope that we can build on these successes with the current team."

The Real Madrid midfielder admitted that it wasn't the perfect night as he wanted to win his landmark match.

He said: "Our problem was the first 10 or 15 minutes. After that we played a good game and improved our footballing skills to the last game. In the end we are not satisfied with the point because we aim to win the game."

Germany boss Joachim Low described the match as "incredibly intense".

The manager said: "The game was incredibly intense. Both teams risked a lot, but also made a lot of mistakes.

"We got into the game badly, then we showed very good morale. That was certainly positive. But we made some mistakes at the back. We consciously risked a lot, made mistakes, we have to fix that."
