Bench time agitates Kroos

Germany midfielder Toni Kroos is frustrated by his lack of opportunities at Euro 2012 following his standout season for Bayern Munich.

The 22-year-old is craving a starting role in Germany’s final Group B game against Denmark after playing a combined 12 minutes in their two opening games against Portugal and the Nertherlands.

Kroos was the fulcrum of Bayern’s attack this season and helped his side make the Champions League final but with Real Madrid star Meseut Ozil a regular in the attacking midfield role for Germany, his appearances have been reduced to cameos.

“It is not satisfying,” Kroos said.

“Especially after the season I had, it would only be logical that I want to play.”

Germany has six points from their opening two games and look odds on to qualify, but Kroos believes they can play much better.

“We have won twice, but I would not say that we have played excellent football.”

Kroos may see more game time against Denmark if manager Joachim Loew opts to rotate his squad with only a draw needed to assure qualification.
