Toni Kroos insists Germany won’t get carried away by Portugal rout; focusing on Ghana

Germany midfielder Toni Kroos has said that the squad must look beyond their brilliant start against Portugal and focus on their next opponent, Ghana.

Germany began their World Cup campaign in spectacular fashion by dismantling a self-destructive Portugal side in a 4-0 rout.

Kroos said: “For us and for me personally it was a very good start but not much more than that. We all came here with the aim of being world champions but we’ll have to play well in seven games.”

The Bayern Munich playmaker, who is a target for many of Europe’s top teams, added: “Now we are already lloking at the second game and therefore the first game is worth nothing.”
