Miroslav Klose's Record Doesn't Take Away From Ronaldo's Achievements - Sbnation.com

Large_sb_nation_final Seven? What on earth happened there then?" Only probably in German. While Ronaldo the original one has been nothing but gracious about his record being broken, there has been a fair amount of kvetching from others about the appropriateness of somebody like Klose taking the record of somebody like Ronaldo. Two main objections seem to dominate this line of thought. The first is that Ronaldo is one of the greatest and most exhilarating strikers ever to run really quickly past a load of defenders before poking the ball past the keeper, over and over again, whereas Klose is, well, a bit unglamorous. A bit dull, if we're being frank. Secondly, Ronaldo's World Cup story follows an romantic arc of hope, tragedy and redemption, from the joys of most of France '98, through that tournament's cruel and inexplicable final, and then on into 2002 when he got a silly haircut, exorcised his demons and lifted the trophy. Conversely, Klose's World Cups have lacked the Disney: turn up, score a handful, get knocked out at some point, repeat. Not only that, but his hair has been defiantly sensible throughout. Basically, Ronaldo is the goalscorer as hero, whereas Klose is the goalscorer as accountant. But what accountants know better than anyone is that a goal is worth precisely one goal, whether it's the greatest of all time or it's bounced off a shin from three yards out.
