Toni Kroos aiming for incredible individual Club World Cup record against Al Hilal

Should Real Madrid defeat Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal on Saturday, they will secure a record fifth Club World Cup title, having already won the competition in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018. No other side has won it more than three times.

Toni Kroos has been part of all of Real Madrid’s previous successes in the Club World Cup, having joined from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014.

However, he also boasts a winner’s medal in the tournament from his days at the German champions, meaning that he is aiming to become the first player to win the Club World Cup six times.

Bayern defeated Moroccan side Raja Casablanca in the final back in 2013, in which Kroos started and played 60 minutes. That was his first and only title with his homeland side, before making the move to Los Blancos at the end of that season.

Kroos is the only player with five winner’s medals, and he will be hoping to make that six in Rabat on Saturday against Al Hilal. His Real Madrid future is up in the air, with his contract expiring at the end of the season, so this may be his final opportunity to extend his record.
