Euro 2016 has commenced and its fever is slowly building in India as well.

India’s Test captain Virat Kohli is no different and has already pledged his support to Germany. Also Read: Virat Kohli expresses his support to Germany for Euro 2016

Kohli, who is not playing in India’s ongoing series against Zimbabwe as he has been given a break ahead of India’s gruelling Test season, is an ardent football fan. Only a few days back, he had organised a charity football match between cricketers and bollywood celebrities, which was well received.

He had earlier tweeted in support of Germany by wearing team’s jersey. And now, star German mid-fielder Toni Kroos has responded to Kohli’s tweet by thanking him for the support.

Not only this, Kroos also commented on Kohli’s number selection for the jersey. He even wrote that he will soon send Kohli a gift. His tweet read: “Beautiful shirt and great number choice @imVkohli ! Awesome! Going to send you a gift”.

Mutual admiration between sportspersons from different nationalities and sports is indeed endearing. For now, it will be interesting to see how Germany fares in the competition and of course, what gift does Kohli receive from Kroos.
