Watch: The Panel React To Germany's Wins & Musiala Class With McInally & Huth

Former Germany defender Robert Huth believes Toni Kroos could make a spectacular U-turn on his decision to retire from the game after Euro 2024.

The midfielder has been instrumental in both of Germany's wins that has seen Julian Nagelsmann's side find the net seven times.

Germany look like the team to beat at this year's tournament and it is no surprise that football betting sites have rejigged their odds to make them joint-favourites.

Jamal Musiala is another player at the centre of Germany's success and he is among the favourites to win the young player of the tournament award after bagging yet again against Hungary.

Huth sat down with The Panel host Alan McInally to assess his nation's chances of winning Euro 2024 on home soil.

Robert Huth's Thoughts On Germany

Germany started their campaign with a 5-1 demolition job over Scotland, much to the delight of Huth as he teased McInally.

"The bragging rights are well and truly with Germany.

"Literally within 10 to 15 seconds of the game starting you could see the game plan, they completely suffocated Scotland when they tried to make any forward movement."

It was the biggest win of all the first round of fixtures, but it left many German fans wondering whether they were so good or Scotland were so poor.

"Yesterday (2-0 win vs Hungary) was a real good indication of where we are in terms of tournament football now."

Germany made it six points from a possible six and if they avoid defeat to Switzerland in their final game then they will finish as Group A winners.

Huth touched on a number of star performances from the likes of Jamal Musiala, Ilkay Gundogan and Florian Wirtz in the first two matches, but it was Toni Kroos who the former Leicester man honed in on.

"You know, I can see him (Kroos) changing his mind," Huth told

"It would be such a shame. He's never been the most physical in terms of speed, but he's always been able to get around the pitch and obviously his passing is sensational.

"I hope he doesn't (retire), because he still brings so much to... any team really. He won the Champions League three weeks ago, so his level certainly hasn't dropped."
