Kroos won the first of his 106 caps in 2010 and was part of the Germany side that lifted the 2014 World Cup.

“I have played 106 times for Germany. There will not be another time,” Kroos wrote on Twitter.

“I had already made the decision to retire after this tournament for some time. It had been clear to me for a while that I will not be available for the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.”
