When it comes to international football, no team has had as much success as the German national team. From their first World Cup win in 1954 to their recent success at the 2014 World Cup, the German team has been a force to be reckoned with. With so much success, it’s no surprise that they’ve had some of the greatest goalscorers of all time. Here’s a look at Germany’s all-time top scorers.

First of all, no list of top German goalscorers would be complete without Miroslav Klose. The now-retired striker scored a record-breaking 71 goals for the national team, making him the all-time top scorer in the history of German football.

Klose represented Germany in four World Cups, and was their joint-top scorer in their victorious World Cup-winning campaign of 2014 (along with Thomas Müller). He is widely regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation.

Another great name on the list of German goalscorers is Gerd Müller. Müller was known for his remarkable goal-scoring ability, and he was Germany’s all-time top scorer until Klose overtook him in 2013. He scored an incredible 68 goals for Germany in 62 appearances, and was a key member of the team that won the 1974 World Cup.

Next, we have Uwe Seeler. Seeler was a great goalscorer for the national team, and is still the third-highest goalscorer in Germany’s history. He played in three World Cups and won two of them, and scored 43 goals in a career that spanned 14 years. He was known as one of the best headers of the ball in the game, and his powerful and accurate finishing made him a force to be reckoned with.

Last but not least, we have Jürgen Klinsmann. Klinsmann was a great attacking player for Germany, and fell just one goal short of equaling Seeler’s record. He scored 47 goals in his nine-year national team career, and helped lead the team to the 1996 European Championships. He was known for his skill and speed, and was often cited as one of the most exciting players to watch.

These four great players have given us some of the best and most memorable moments in the history of German football. As selectors begin to look for the next generation of German goal scorers, they would do well to take their lead from the greats that have gone before them.
