Forget the opponent, forget the red card. This was Germany at their absolute best, a dominant performance that sends a warning shot to the entire tournament. Julian Nagelsmann has them firing on all cylinders.

The star of the show for Germany wasn’t a scorer, but Toni Kroos. He orchestrated the entire German game with his pinpoint passing, controlling possession and stifling Scotland’s attack. Bringing him out of retirement is proving a masterstroke.

Germany echoes their 2006 World Cup opener with a dominant win! Just like in the Allianz Arena back then, they kick off the Euros with a resounding victory, this time even more impressive – their biggest ever at the Euros and Scotland’s worst ever Euros defeat. This sets a strong tone for their tournament ambitions.

Even more impressive, it stands as the largest margin of victory in any European Championship opening match.


Fresh off hoisting his sixth Champions League trophy with Real Madrid, veteran midfielder Toni Kroos closed the curtain on his illustrious career at the Spanish giant in June. His trophy haul boasts five Champions League titles with Madrid, alongside four La Liga championships.

However, the 34-year-old’s story might not be quite over. After announcing his retirement from international football, Kroos was coaxed back by Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann for Euro 2024.

“Convincing Kroos wasn’t easy”, as Nagelsmann himself admitted. He highlighted Kroos’ crucial role, especially for younger players, stating “Toni is important for us… He’s an important player for everyone.”

Ultimately, the lure of potentially adding another title proved too strong. Kroos agreed to return, telling Nagelsmann, “Let’s do it.”
