Real Madrid star Toni Kroos will take up a pundit slot with German TV for the 2022 World Cup.
The 32-year-old midfielder opted to bring down the curtain on his international career after Euro 2020 last summer after winning 106 caps and a World Cup title in 2014.
Kroos is the ninth most capped player in the history of German football and he will join the Magenta TV team for the tournament in Qatar.
