Kroos but no cigar

Like a lot of footballers on the day of a game, Real Madrid star Toni Kroos posted a message on Twitter revealing his excitement.

In a post delivered to to 1.64 million followers ahead of Germany’s crucial Euro 2016 qualification clash against the Republic of Ireland, Kroos exclaimed: “Matchday !!!”  followed by the German word “wichtig”, meaning important.

However, the former Bayern Munich man made a small mistake in one of his hashtags…


Confusing Scotland for Ireland wasn’t a deliberate error, however, and Kroos posted a follow up message correcting himself, while also acknowledging that he had some “astute” followers.


“The game is naturally against Ireland. Nevertheless important…” he wrote.

An important distinction indeed.
