Klose sets sights on goals record

Miroslav Klose will equal Ronaldo's record of 15 goals at the World Cup if he scores one time in Brazil.

Germany striker Miroslav Klose says it would "mean the world" to him if he manages to break Ronaldo's World Cup goal scoring record at Brazil 2014.

Klose needs to score one goal to equal Brazilian forward Ronaldo's record of 15 goals in FIFA's flagship event, with his status alongside Gerd Mueller in the current scoring charts inspiring some reporters to compare the striker striving for World Cup records this summer to the legendary German marksman.

"Please don't compare me to Gerd Mueller, I will never be mentioned in the same breath," said Klose, in comments appearing in the Daily Mirror, before he went on to address the issue of the World Cup scoring milestone he is chasing.

"I don't like speaking about records, but anyone who knows me knows that this is an important goal of mine and it is something that keeps me going at this level.

"It would mean the world to me and I realise it would be special, but I am not yet at full fitness after an injury, and I know there are no guarantees in any team."

Klose broke Mueller's Germany scoring record earlier this month and national team boss Joachim Loew suggests there is more to come from the 36-year-old Lazio striker.

"I am so happy for Miro that he has broken the record for Germany, because if anyone deserves it, then it is him," stated the Germany boss. "It is a great thing for him to have this record and a great thing for the team too.

"He is still coming back from injury and his legs are not quite 100 per cent yet, but he is a tournament player, he has proven that. He knows what to do. That is why he is close to another record, and will be very important for us here."

Meanwhile, current World Cup record scorer Ronaldo has urged the Brazilian public to play their part in ensuring Klose does not overtake his mark of 15 goals.

"Please cast a tiny spell on Klose," said Ronaldo with a smile. "That would be good, so that Klose scores no goals here. I will pray with all my powers that he does not break the record."
