Toni Kroos takes to Twitter to respond to outrageous El Chiringuito claim

Spanish football is one of the most entertaining realms of our world, and part of that entertainment is that at times, it crosses over into parody. Toni Kroos, as sharp with his words as his passing, spotted as much on Thursday night.

Popular talk show El Chiringuito has a habit of exceedingly dramatic turns and presentation. Often the goal is laughter or shock, but Cristina Cubero unwittingly inspired the former as they were likely seeking the latter.

Asked whom she thought were the most disappointing players during the World Cup, she initially responded with Vinicius Junior, before going for another Real Madrid player.

“I would say a name from the German national team, Toni Kroos.”

The metronomic midfielder responded to this on Twitter with the line: “I knew that somebody would blame me”.

Die Mannschaft exited at the group stage in a highly disappointing campaign, but of course Kroos was not even part of the squad. The 32-year-old retired after the 2018 World Cup, thus it is no surprise that he was anonymous as Germany went out.

  1. Hire incompetent women, get incompetent answers.

    Why did they even hire this plug? It certainly wasnt for her mind or looks.

    I feelt that Oliver Kahn was most dissapointing. He should have done more to prevent Germany from elimination.

    1. Also, that Alex tweet is 100% correct.
      One goal, two assists, participated in buildup of two other goals in a star studiedag Brasil. What more do you want from him?
      If he got as many penalties as HGH gnome did, he would be top scorer of WC.
