Miroslav Klose eyes World Cup success with Germany

Miroslav Klose hopes to top off his illustrious career by helping Germany win next summer's 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Klose is currently tied on 68 goals with Gerd Muller as the all-time leading goalscorer for Germany, and the 35-year-old is desperate to help Die Mannschaft end a wait for a major trophy which stretches back to Euro 96.

He told German television station NDR: "The desire to win the World Cup is great. A couple of times I have touched the finish line.

"There would be nothing more beautiful than to win a title with the German national team, be that the European Championship or World Cup.

"Would I then be satisfied? I would say that I will never be satisfied. Let's say that I am rarely satisfied.

"When a goal has been reached or not reached, I have a new one set, but when a target has been reached, the next one will have to be higher."

Germany need two points from their last two qualifiers to clinch a place in Brazil, with their first opportunity coming this evening when they play host to the Republic of Ireland in Cologne.
