Kroos and Gündogan were in the starting lineup in the 1-0 loss to FranceAlthough there was a previous debate about whether one of the two positions in the double pivot should not be for Joshua Kimmich, who played as a right back.
Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, both from Bayern, are considered the natural relays of Kroos and Gündogan in the German national team.
After the tournament, former Bayern coach Hansi Flick will assume the reins of the team and many expect him to bet on the duo of Kimmich and Goretzka.
