Why does this German player need to score twice at the World Cup?

Germany striker, Miroslav Klose needs only 2 goals at the World Cup to become the tournament's all-time top goalscorer with 15 goals.

Miroslav Klose will be as eager as any to get his World Cup campaign off to a good start as he looks to become the tournaments all-time top-goalscorer. 

The German is currently sitting on 14 goals and will be looking to add 2 more in his fourth World Cup to surpass Brazilian legend, Ronaldo who is leading the way with 15 strikes. 

The 35-year-old will make his bow in Germany's opening match on the 16th June against Portugal and the Lazio striker will want nothing more than to get off the mark quickly. 

England fan's will remember Klose for all the wrong-reasons four years-ago as he began the German onslaught pouncing on Manuel Neur's goal-kick and toe-poking the ball past the on-rushing David James. 

This year's injury problems for Germany in the attacking department means Klose may be more heavily relied upon by coach Joachim Low as they look to cope without the likes of Marco Reus. 

What will prove to be Klose's last World Cup, the former Bayern Munich man will want to go out on a high by staking his claim as the worlds most prolific striker in World Cup history. 

With a tough group awaiting the Germans in group-G, the likes of: Portugal, Ghana and USA will be no pushovers and will be tough oppositions to break-down. 

Nevertheless, the veteran, Klose will be confident he can not only lead the German line and bag himself a couple of goals; he will also feel the squad has a great chance of going all the way in Brazil.
