“They play well as a team but I can’t tell you a name.”
The Chelsea youngster scored the second goal of the match to confirm Chelsea’s impending victory.
In the post-match interview with CBS Sports, Mount said : “I saw one of their players [Kroos] saying he doesn’t lose sleep over any of our players. Maybe he should lose sleep over us as a team.”
And now the German has replied to the youngster’s comments on his Twitter account.
Kroos on Thursday retweeted ESPN’S tweet- “Still sleeping ok. But well done yesterday. congrats. Good luck in your first CL final.”
The response is all heart and speaks about the kind of person Toni Kroos is off the football pitch.
