The best bromance in football of all time bar none

Toni Kroos is a big fan of Robbie Williams. I mean, we all love belting out Angels after a few drinks but Toni Kroos loves Robbie Williams. A quick Twitter search of their usernames will bring up countless examples of Toni Kroos expressing his admiration for the pop singer.

Robbie Williams opened this World Cup with a stunning performance at the opening ceremony, which you’d imagine Toni Kroos thoroughly enjoyed.

But tonight it was Kroos who stole the headlines with an even more stunning 95th minute winner against Sweden. Germany were drawing 1-1 with Sweden and facing an early exit from the tournament, until their midfield metronome stepped up and expertly dispatched a sensational shot into the top corner from a narrow angle.

It will be one of many career highlights for Kroos, but the person who enjoyed it the most was possible his idol, Robbie Williams, who tweeted Kroos after the game, reciprocating Kroos’ love for him.
