The 36-year-old, playing in his fourth World Cup, had already equalled Ronaldo on 15 goals with his dramatic strike in Germany's 2-2 draw against Ghana in the group stage before moving ahead Tuesday in the match in Belo Horizonte.The goal was his first in a World Cup semi-final and one of his most important because it put Germany 2-0 ahead.Standing 1.82 metres tall, Klose is almost unstoppable in the air and is known for his superb timing and leaping ability having worked hard to develop those skills.He has been consistently lethal in front of goal in his four World Cups and contributing to his record-breaking tally has been the fact he has played in 23 matches due to Germany having reached the final and semi-finals twice each in that time.A trained carpenter, Klose has been hammering in goals for years.Four years later with Germany as hosts, Klose won the Golden Boot when he scored another five goals in leading Germany to the semi-finals.
