The 2014 FIFA World Cup will add plenty of pages to the history books, one of which could be a new top goalscorer in Miroslav Klose. The German has scored 14 goals in three tournaments, and sits just one behind Brazilian legend Ronaldo’s 15. Two goals would give Klose sole position of the top World Cup goalscorer in the tournament’s illustrious history.

Klose is currently tied with fellow countryman Gerd Mueller, who recorded an incredible 14 goals in just two tournaments and 13 total matches.

Even more impressive is France’s Just Fontaine’s 13 goals from one single tournament. Fontaine averaged 2.17 goals per match.

The legendary Pele rounds out the top 5 with 12 goals across four World Cups and 14 total matches.

Following is a list of top goalscorers in World Cup history, including goals scored, matches played, goal average, and years.
