Toni Kroos can, in many ways, be characterized as a complete midfielder. His versatility is remarkable as he is more than capable of both defending as well as attacking. He is especially gifted at orchestrating attacks due to his vision, drive and distribution skills when he dictates the play from his central midfield position. He is also a sufficient goalscorer, most notably from his long-range strikes. His abilities make him one of the best central midfielders in world football, which is why he has also been an important part of successful campaigns such as the Real Madrid UCL winning-streak as well as the Germany triumph at the World Cup in 2014.
