Kroos eyeing Club World Club treble

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos insists he is not fazed by individual accolades, but admits that he is determined to clinch the third FIFA World Club Cup trophy of his career.

Kroos, along with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, can achieve an historic feat of lifting the global club trophy for the third time if Real Madrid claim victory in Japan.

"Individual achievements are not important for me, to be honest," he told FIFA's official website.

"But when you go to a tournament all you want to do is win it, so lifting this title for a third time would be special for me. It also means that I've won the Champions League three times.

"I'm really looking forward to the tournament.

"You don't get to play a lot of games against teams like these, and it's really interesting to take on sides who play very different types of football and who you're not used to playing.

"I'm back training with the team again and I feel good. I'm going to be fit," he concluded.

The La Liga giants open their Club World Cup account on December 15 at the semi-final stage of the competition.
