Germany midfielder Toni Kroos has no regrets about joining Real Madrid from Bayern Munich this summer.

The 24-year-old left Bayern after rejecting their offer of a new contract, and he believes he made the right move.

"I've done everything right - I'm 100 per cent satisfied," he told Bild.

"In a worldwide standing, Real Madrid are a small step ahead of Bayern Munich.

"If I just think about my presentation at the Bernabeu, there were 20,000 fans there even though I had never played a single second for Real.

"Something like that is inconceivable in Germany. In Spain, the football fans are more emotional about the game."

Reus: Scotland have a very strong team

Marco Reus has warned Germany that Scotland will be no pushovers when the two sides meet in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Dortmund on Sunday.

"The Scots won twice against Croatia," the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who missed the World Cup through injury, said at a press conference.

"They have a very strong team, which plays competitively at a high level and closes the space well.

"We need to be much better than against Argentina. In front of goal we need to be more determined and use our chances better.

"Scotland definitely have a chance of finishing in second place. With Darren Fletcher they have a real leader, up front they have quick and dangerous players. You have to be patient against them."
