Toni Kroos, a Real Madrid midfielder, has been ruled out of Germany’s first three World Cup qualifiers due to an adductor injury.
Germany announced on Tuesday that Kroos has returned to Madrid as a precaution.
“Our medical department has examined and treated Toni intensively,” said head coach Joachim Low.
Since returning to Real Madrid with a minor injury, Kroos will therefore miss some of Germany’s upcoming matches.
“He would have liked to stay with us, and I am reluctant to be without him. But with a view to the Euros, we decided that the full recovery from this injury must be a priority,” Low said about Kroos.
So, Kroos will not appear in any of the team’s games for the next eight days.
