It only takes a glance at the sixteen goals scored by Klose in World Cups to understand what kind of forward he is.

All goals were finished from inside the area. Almost every single one was executed perfectly from within 12 yards, and almost half were headers.

Glückwünsche! After a 4-2 win over Greece tonight, the Germans are through to the semi-finals of Euro 2012, although admittedly, they were a shadow of themselves in the first half. Lackluster finishing, passing (Ozil's fish diet clearly doesn't hide his exhaustion) and poor defending almost cost them dearly, as did Joachim Low's unexpected decision to field Miroslav Klose, who hardly touched the ball in the first half.

This evening, as we have been reliably, repeatedly and at great length informed over the last few days, is more than a football match. This evening, apparently, is all about geo-politics and economics. While this not true, of course, the presence of Angela Merkel at the PGE Arena in Gdansk an appearance which is either saying something quite profound about discretion being the better part of valour or will one day be used in dictionaries alongside the definition of the word "chutzpah"- has added a frisson of tension to a match which otherwise would probably be considered little more than a stroll in the park for Germany.
