Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos targets more starts for Germany.

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has claimed that he was "disappointed" at not starting for Germany in their World Cup qualification win over Republic of Ireland on Friday.

The 22-year-old started the match on the bench, but netted twice after coming on at half time in a 6-1 win for the Germans.

However, he is expected to be on the bench once more when Germany welcome Sweden to Berlin on Tuesday.

"Obviously you're disappointed when you've made such a good start to the season [at club level], but don't start [for the national side]," Kroos told the official Bayern website.

"Those who know me are well aware that I have confidence in myself, and it's my opinion that I ought to be playing somewhere.

"But it's not something I can influence. Naturally, we have tremendous quality and many options, especially in midfield. I've arrived in very good form, and I went out and confirmed it [against Ireland], no more and no less."

Kroos has scored four goals for Bayern this season.
