Miroslav Klose becomes Germany's all-time leading scorer

Miroslav Klose is the greatest goalscorer in Germany history.

Gerd Müller, Jurgen Klinsmann, Rudi Völler, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Owe Seeler are all legends of world football. They starred for club and country, scoring goals seemingly at will.

And none of them scored as many goals for Germany as Miroslav Klose.

Klose scored in Germany's 6-1 win over Armenia on Friday, giving him 69 career goals for Die Mannschaft, one more than Müller, who held the record for 40 years.  Setting records in a Germany shirt is kind of the norm for Klose, who is the only player in World Cup history to score four goals in three different tournaments and one of only two players to score five goals in two tournaments.

Klose can still break a couple more records this summer, too. He is currently tied with Müller for most World Cup goals by a Germany player with 14, and is one goal behind Ronaldo for the most World Cup goals ever.

There aren't enough ovations in the world for you, Klose.
