West Germany 1974 - No.13 Gerd Muller.

Away.


Gerhard "Gerd" Müller never fitted the conventional idea of a great footballer, but he had lethal acceleration over short distances, a remarkable aerial game, and uncanny goalscoring instincts.
At the 1974 World Cup he scored the winning goal in the 2–1 victory over the Netherlands in the final, this following his winning goals for West Germany in the 1972 European Championships.

Nicknamed 'Der Bomber' for obvious reasons, the Bayern Munich predator scored 365 goals in 427 Bundesliga games and 68 times in 62 internationals, milestones no other player is ever likely to equal.

Müller is now tenth on the list of all time international goalscorers despite playing fewer matches than every other player in the top 25.

Home.

The golden era for the West German national team and its domestic league during the early to mid-1970s would have been unthinkable without Muller, as his former team-mate Franz Beckenbauer is quick to underline: "Everything that FC Bayern has become is due to Gerd Muller and his goals."


He is considered the original uncompromising striker like no other professional footballer, putting his all into somehow getting the ball into the back of the opponents' net. He will never be remembered as the most skillful, but as a prolific striker there is no comparison.
Fellow World Cup winner Bernd Hoelzenbein said of Muller "He can't be compared to anyone. Anyone! Not even Pelé."
