Klose equals Mueller's Germany scoring record

MUNICH (Reuters) - Miroslav Klose equalled Gerd Mueller's record of 68 goals for Germany when he scored in the 34th minute of their World Cup Group C qualifier against Austria on Friday.

Klose, in typically opportunist fashion, got in front of his marker to turn the ball home after Thomas Mueller drilled in a low cross from the right.

The 35-year-old was making the 129th appearance of an international career that has spanned 12 years.

Mueller's record was set in 1974.
