Miroslav Josef Klose (-deˈmɪʁoslaf ˈkloːzə-klose is a German footballer who plays as a striker for Lazio in the Serie A. Since bursting onto the international stage with five goals at the 2002 World Cup, he has become well known for his knack of scoring headers, front-flip goal celebrations, and decisive short passing. He was a mainstay in Bayern's starting 11 before injuries took him out of the team for a while.

Klose holds German nationality and has played 112 times and scored 62 goals for Germany. With five goals, he was the top scorer and Golden Boot winner at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Klose also scored five goals in his debut World Cup, the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan, all of which were headers. He scored against Australia in his first game of the 2010 World Cup, opened the scoring against England in the first round of the knockout stages, and scored twice on his 100th cap against Argentina in the quarter-finals, giving him a total of 14 World Cup goals and putting him joint second along with Gerd Müller on the list of FIFA World Cup goalscorers, but one behind all-time top scorer Ronaldo of Brazil.

Klose is the first German player since reunification to finish as the World Cup's top scorer. He is also the only player to have scored five or more goals in consecutive World Cups, as well as the only player to have scored at least four in three different tournaments; he scored five at the 2002 and 2006 tournaments and four at the 2010 finals.
