#Brazil2014: Miroslav Klose Sets New World Cup Goals Record

share on:

Miroslav Klose scored Germany’s second goal in the 7-1 drubbing of Brazil, and he set a new World Cup record in the process.

The 36-year-old struck in the first half against the host nation, tapping home from point-blank range after Julio Cesar had denied him at the first attempt.

The Lazio striker netted five goals at the 2002 World Cup, five times four years later, four in 2010 and now twice during this summer’s showpiece.

Previous record holder Ronaldo amassed his strikes across three tournaments, in 1998, 2002 and 2006 – and lifted the famous trophy once along the way, 12 years ago this summer.
