Veteran striker Miroslav Klose would like to appear at the 2014 World Cup at the ripe old age of 36.
"I think I can play at a high level for some years," he said. "I'm only 32 so age is not a problem. If I'm still fit in four years and my performance is good, why should I not play then?"
When asked about his foreseeable competition in 2014, Klose admitted that there should be plenty of options.
"The example set by Thomas Mueller shows that we are moving up young, talented players. In Mario Gomez, Cacau and Stefan Kiessling we have good strikers already, and even Marco Reus will make his way. I'm not worried that Germany will always have strikers that are of international calibre."
Should he appear at the 2014 World Cup, Klose will have a chance to equal or surpass Ronaldo's record of 15 goals at the World Cup. In 2002, 2006 and 2010, the Bayern Munich man has scored a combined 14 goals.
