Next to his team’s 7-1 thumping of tournament host Brazil, Germany’s Miroslav Klose also had a personal triumph to celebrate: scoring his 16th goal at a World Cup tournament, Klose is now the leading goal scorer of all times on the sporting world’s biggest stage. The 36-year old striker, who is playing his fourth and probably last World Cup this year, found the net twice in this year’s tournament and will look to improve his tally in the final on Sunday.

Looking at the illustrious list of World Cup history’s top scorers, Klose currently has only one man to fear: his teammate Thomas Müller, Golden Boot winner in South Africa 2010, who already has 10 World Cup goals under his belt despite being only 24 years old. Having the possibility to star in at least two more tournaments, Müller is on track to follow the footsteps of his compatriot straight into sporting history books.
