Miroslav Klose is a Poland-born German footballer who is regarded by many as one of the most effective goal poachers to have ever played the game at the highest level and holds plenty of goal scoring records that had remained unsurpassed for quite a while. Klose was born in Poland but moved with his family to Germany when he was a child and even though he had a chance to play for Poland, he chose to play for Germany. Klose started off playing for the youth set up of a small club before graduating to play for FC Kaiserslautern and following a successful stint of five years at the club he moved to Werder Bremen. Eventually he went on to play for Germany’s biggest club Bayern Munich. Throughout his club career, he showed the ability to get goals and he brought that to the German national team. He has been particularly successful in World Cups with 16 goals across 4 tournaments and is the highest goal scorer at the tournament. In addition to that, he has also achieved the distinction of being the highest ever goal scorer for the German national team by netting a total of 71 goals and breaking German legend Gerd Muller’s record.
