He never was a scorer of pretty goals – but then he never claimed to be. Miroslav Klose’s 16th World Cup goal took him past Ronaldo’s total of 15 to pour even more salt into Brazil’s wounds. Few will think of Klose’s goal when they remember this game – few will perhaps think upon it again. However ugly, this goal should be remembered for the man if nothing else. A man of three World Cup campaigns and innumerable tap-ins, of the unspectacular and the understated. Klose’s style of play, how he goes about his game quietly and effectively, perhaps best epitomises the Germany team of the noughties. Miroslav Klose, we salute you!
