Take a bow Miroslav Klose.
Germany’s 36-year-old striker became the all-time leading goalscorer in World Cup finals history by scoring his 16th goal in 23 appearances.
Klose overtook Brazilian legend Ronaldo, who had 15 goals to his name, by scoring against Brazil as Germany raced into an incredible 5-0 lead at half time.
The former Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen striker has written his name into the history books with his incredible ability to poach goals for his country.
Watch the Polish born striker break the record with a typically cool finish below.
What an incredible achievement from a man who has scored in four different World Cups over a 16-year span.
