The new record can be created in the World Cup match of third place?

The big picture is the story of a few small pictures. The most prominent and historical is Miroslav Klose’s pursuit of the all-time goal scoring record, currently sitting one behind Ronaldo at 14, but maybe not sitting much at all with a back injury going into the game. On an individual level, it’s an enormous game for Klose and Germany.The other striker being watched is Diego Forlan, arguably one of the favorites for Golden Ball as player of the tournament despite on the losing end of the semifinal, and his propensity for shooting from absolutely anywhere on the pitch, including corners, which makes spectating fun. Meanwhile, we can see the return of hero/villain Luis Suarez + hands; the potential Golden Ball,the chance to see just how much of a difference Thomas Mueller makes in this side; and one last chance to see this phase of an evolving Germany, who will be one of the co-favorites for Polkraine 2012 and perhaps Brazil 2014.

I would love to see Klose score at least one if not two goals in the World Cup to lay claim to that record. Mr. Klose has been the Mr. World Cup taking his game several notches up while playing for the country!! The fact is that he is not even in the starting line-up for his club Bayern Munich, but everytime a bit tournament comes in Klose is there on the scoresheet. Compare that with a Wayne (Vain) Rooney who scores buckets of goal for Man U, but comes up blanks for England!! Cheers! Ram
