Move over Ronaldo.

German forward Miroslav Klose on Tuesday became the all-time leading scorer in World Cup history with his 23rd minute goal in the 2014 World Cup semifinal played in Belo Horizonte.

The goal, which put Germany up 2-0, was Klose's 16th goal in 23 all-time World Cup appearances.

It was his second goal of the 2014 World Cup after scoring against Ghana in the second group-stage match.

The 36-year-old, who has been rumored to be a target of MLS clubs in recent months, recently signed a one-year contract to extend his stay at Italian club Lazio.
