11. Gerd Muller
Before Thomas Muller, there was Miroslav Klose. And before Klose, there was Gerd Muller. If you want to talk about goal-poaching forwards, Gerd Muller is the man. Number three in the all-time rankings, his record at the top-level is extraordinary, with 14 goals scored across two World Cups.
A bit like Gary Lineker, Muller had great instincts. Der Bomber banged out ten goals, including two hattricks, in 1970 to win the Golden Boot. He only scored four in 1974, but the team did better because they went all the way to the final and beat a strongly favoured Netherlands side, in a shock result.
