Klose breaks record as Germany run riot

KLOSE-RECORDBELO HORIZONTE, July 8- Miroslav Klose became the World Cup’s all-time top-scorer after netting his 16th goal in the competition in Germany’s first-half semi-final rout of Brazil

The 36-year-old, appearing in his fourth World Cup semi-final, put Germany well on course for Sunday’s final in Rio de Janeiro after Thomas Mueller’s early opener.

Toni Kroos then added two more in as many minutes to incredibly put the Germans 4-0 up before Sami Khedira added a fifth on the half hour mark.

Klose had matched Brazilian legend Ronaldo’s record of 15 World Cup goals when he scored the equaliser in Germany’s 2-2 draw with Ghana in the group stages.

This is Klose’s second goal-scoring record in just over a month after he broke Gerd Mueller’s previous mark of 68 goals to become Germany’s top scorer in a 6-1 pre-World Cup friendly win against Armenia.
