However, Effenberg cautioned against Kroos' return, expressing concerns about the potential repercussions. "Germany is going through a rough patch, and a return might jeopardize some of what he has accomplished with the national team," he warned, hinting at the unstable environment surrounding the squad.

The former midfielder also highlighted the potential benefits for Kroos in abstaining from international duty. "Missing a tournament at this stage of his career could grant him an additional season or two at the club level," Effenberg suggested, emphasizing the potential physical and mental benefits for the veteran midfielder.

As discussions persist regarding Kroos' potential return and Germany's quest to regain stability, the decision rests with the player himself, considering both the immediate impact on the national team and the long-term prospects for his career.
