Ronaldo's Message for Miroslav Klose as He Equals Record of 15 World Cup Goals

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterJune 21, 2014

Miroslav Klose's goal for Germany in the 2-2 draw with Ghana at the World Cup on Saturday took him to 15 goals in the tournament—level with Brazil's Ronaldo as the top scorers in World Cup history.

The Brazilian legend had a simple message of congratulations, written in Klose's first language of German:

Willkommen im klub #Klose

— Claro Ronaldo (@ClaroRonaldo) June 21, 2014

And for those of us whose German isn't quite so hot:

Welcome to the club #Klose

— Claro Ronaldo (@ClaroRonaldo) June 21, 2014

Ronaldo scored his 15 goals across the 1998, 2002 and 2006 tournaments. Klose is in his fourth World Cup and has now scored in all four.

The duo were both on the field in the 2002 World Cup final—a game settled by two goals from Ronaldo.

Klose's goal also brought him another record—he eclipsed Gerd Mueller as Germany's all-time top goalscorer with 69 strikes for his country.
