Striker is one goal away from joining Ronaldo on 15 World Cup goalsSaturday’s third-place playoff has the potential to crown the winner of the Golden Boot but Miroslav Klose insists he is not concered about the award.
The 32-year-old may not start against Uruguay due to a back injury but he is one goal short of equalling Ronaldo's record of 15 goals at World Cup finals.
Klose scored two goals against Argentina in the quarter-finals to put him level with fellow countryman Gerd Muller.
"I want to win against Uruguay, even if I don't score, that's still the most important thing.” Klose said in a press conference.
"I don't know whether I am going to pass Ronaldo's record, and I don't really care. I am more interested in what we do as a team."
Holland’s Wesley Sneijder and Spain’s David Villa are currently tied for the lead for the Golden Boot award with five goals each. Thomas Muller, Diego Forlan and Klose have all netted four goals this tournament.
