Gerd Muller of Germany is rated as the highest goal scorer in the soccer world cup. The West German footballer held national records of 68 goals from 62 international appearances, and he was possibly the most successful striker ever. He was popularly known as Gerd "Der Bomber" Müller.

He ended his career in a blaze of glory scoring the winning goal giving West Germany its 2-1 victory over Netherlands in the 1974 World Cup final. The game was pure magic for German supporters and football fans alike. Muller scored a total of 14 goals in the two World Cup tournaments he played, which were in 1970 and 1974. He scored 10 of the 14 goals in the 1970 World Cup and 4 in 1974.
