Miroslav Klose
Club:Kaiserslautern
Position:Forward

Manager Rudi Voeller seems to have found the answer to his side's lack of attacking threat.

Since the days of Jurgen Klinsmann, Germany have lacked the sort of player whose clinical finishing can win a game from anywhere.

However, Klose has stepped up at the World Cup and with five goals has taken his international tally to more than a goal every other game.

Klose possesses speed in abundance and also has an unerring ability to find the target - particulalry off his head.

He became an instant hit with the German fans when he scored a last-gasp winner against Albania on his international debut in the World Cup qualifying campaign.
