History has been made at the 2014 World Cup.
A rip-roaring match between Germany and Ghana on Saturday night produced a massive moment of World Cup history, as 36-year-old Miroslav Klose become the competition’s joint all-time goalscorer.
Klose scored his record 15th World Cup goal with a toe-poke against Ghana to level the match 2-2.
Despite his age, the Lazio forward celebrated his milestone with his trademark flip on the pitch at Fortaleza.
Below are the best tweets marking Miroslav Klose’s moment writing him into World Cup folklore.
Ronaldo broke Müller's record in Germany. Klose equalled Ronaldo's record in Brazil. Both against Ghana. Mother of coincidences. [@averajo]

Klose a bit too old for the somersault.

I find Miroslav Klose's insistence on doing those awful, awful somersaults so endearing #GER

Klose…..some guys just know how to be in the right place at the right time. He's an expert. You can't teach that… #GER

Miroslav Klose equals Ronaldo's record, and then almost knackers his knees in celebration. What a way to go out that would have been.
