Club career

After playing for the local Greifswalder SC team, Kroos moved on to the Hansa Rostock youth squad. In 2006, Kroos joined Bayern Munich’s youth team. Due to training, Kroos missed up to 40 days of school during the academic year. At the age of seventeen, Kroos was called up to the senior squad of Bayern for the 2007–08 campaign. After making his Bayern debut on September 26, 2007, in a 5-0 loss against Energie Cottbus, he had an incredible start to his Bundesliga career, assisting Miroslav Klose twice in the first eighteen minutes of his substitution appearance. At 17 years, 265 days old when he made his debut, Kroos was the youngest player to represent Bayern in a professional match; that record has since been surpassed.

International career

After scoring five goals in the FIFA U-17 World Cup of 2007, Toni Kroos was named the tournament’s best player and took home the Golden Ball and Bronze Shoe. On September 5, 2008, Kroos made his debut for the national U-21 team against Northern Ireland in a 2009 Euro U-21 Championship qualifier. He scored the first goal in the eleventh minute of the match. His second goal for the U-21 squad came in Germany’s 1-0 victory over Italy, which was a crisp long-range strike from an angle. He was unexpectedly left out of Germany’s U-21 squad for Euro 2009 by coach Horst Hrubesch, and the team went on to win the competition without him.
