Frenkie de Jong Sent Toni Kroos Spinning Back To Madrid With Outrageous Turn
Frenkie de Jong sent Toni Kroos spinning back to Madrid during last night's Euro 2020 qualifier.
The 21-year-old Dutch ace starred in midfield though he was unable to steer his country to victory. But he did produce a moment of magic.
In the first-half, De Jong failed to make an impression. However, he lit up the second-half with a superb performance.
And deep into stoppage time, De Jong sent Kroos for a spin with an outrageous turn.

If Kroos were a Barça player and De Jong just signed for Madrid, this would've been on 10k likes at the very least. Like that video of a simple Odegaard run and dribble past Busquets :joy: https://t.co/nH6IxAB6l3- Josip (@gentblaugrana93) March 24, 2019

De Jong and Kroos will renew hostilities next season in La Liga.
Kroos, though, had the last laugh after helping Germany to a 3-2 win over Netherlands away from home. The visitors raced into a two-goal lead thanks to strikes from Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry.
The hosts drew proceedings courtesy of second-half goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Memphis Depay.
Yet Germany secured all three points in dramatic fashion after Nico Schulz netted in the 90th minute.
