The Lazio striker, who has missed his country’s last four games, needs just one more goal to overtake the former Bayern Munich striker. However he is currently is struggling with a pelvic problem and is a major doubt.
Despite being 35 years old, the veteran forward is still a pivotal part of his country’s forward line and with his fellow striker Mario Gomez only recently returning following a 5 month layoff Klose had been tipped to lead the line against Chile.
No decision has been yet as to his involved but after seen his record for the most goals in a calendar year broken by Lionel Messi in 2012, Bayern Munich legend Muller, whilst no doubt worried for his fellow countryman, may secretly be pleased at the thought of seeing his 40 year old goal scoring record remaining intact for a while longer.
The fitness worries over Klose and Gomez is just the latest worry for German manager Joachim Low ahead of the World Cup.
Low is already sweating on the fitness of Sami Kheidira ahead of Brazil and with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ilkay Gundogan struggling at various points this season the clash with Chile will be the perfect opportunity to assess those on the fringes.
“On paper, we have a top team with top quality and top individuals, but the reality looks a little different,” he said.
“The truth is not so nice because many of our players have been injured for a long time and don’t have much rhythm, be it due to a dip in form or niggling injuries, which is why we need to use these next two and a half months to improve and do everything to reach top form.
“The clock is ticking and I’m making an appeal to everybody to prepare as best as they can and to invest all they can, not only to be physically but also psychologically ready for this.
“We need a very good basis and some of my players are still showing deficiencies.”
Low is set to hand debuts to Hamburg’s 12 goal striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Augsburg midfielder Andre Hahn, Sampdoria defender Shkodran Mustafi and Freiburg centre-back Matthias Ginter on Wednesday
Chile meanwhile will be without Fiorentina midfielder David Pizarro and Swedish born defender defender Miiko Albornoz however Gary Medel could feature despite only recently returning to action following injury.
