Effort for reward

Kroos: Everyone's really getting stuck in

The midpoint of the Doha training camp has come and gone, with Jupp Heynckes calling his men out to the practice ground twice on Sunday. “It's very intensive here. You see how everyone is really getting stuck in. But that's how it has to be," Toni Kroos told reporters, “and we'll keep it up this week as well!" Monday even features a third workout, as the players will be woken at 7 am for a 45-minute stamina-building run before breakfast.

Naturally, all the effort is aimed at a reward in the future, the yearned-for Bundesliga title. “It's not a dream, it's a realistic goal," stated Kroos, “we've put ourselves in a very good position. We don't want to carelessly toss it away again, we want to maintain the determination which was our hallmark in the first half of the season."
