If ever you want an example of a midfielder dominating every single aspect of a match, witness Toni Kroos' display in Germany's comfortable 4-0 win over Belarus.

Kroos made an astonishing 170 touches in the contest, which included 123 completed passes, as every conceivable German attack flowed through the Real Madrid midfielder.

But Kroos has added an additional creative element to his game this season and it was in evidence here - the 29-year-old managed eight shots, five of which were on target, and scored two goals. He was also on hand to assist Leon Goretzka's killer second goal.

Twelve duels won and 11 recoveries as well - is Kroos one of the most complete midfielders in the world at the moment?
