Pitchside Europe: Lazio move can take Miroslav closer

“The memories of Klose that will endure the longest are those that recall his World Cup exploits: the neat somersaults that followed each of his five headed goals at the 2002 tournament; the equaliser against Argentina in the 2006 quarter-final in Berlin; the opener in the 4-1 humiliation of England in Bloemfontein last year. Like Pelé, or Diego Maradona, Klose has saved his best performances for the sport’s biggest occasion.”

My latest Pitchside Europe blog, on Miroslav Klose’s anachronistic dedication to international football, can be read here (apologies for the atrocious headline).

  • David:

    It’s a nice piece, Tom. I think the statement:

    “At a time when the Champions League threatens to eclipse the World Cup as football’s most important tournament, Klose is something of a throwback.”

    …might better read:

    “At a time when the Champions League threatens to eclipse the World Cup as footballers’s most important tournament, Klose is something of a throwback.

    …or something to that point. The World Cup is still Numero Uno among the fans.
