Hailed as Germany’s greatest striker in history, few can argue with Muller’s place in this line-up.

The 1970 Ballon d’Or winner, aka “the nation’s Bomber”, was a beast in the final third despite probably not being the most talented player of all-time. His scoring instincts saw him break many Bundesliga records, and it’s only right we included him.

In fact, Muller scored an incredible 68 goals in only 62 appearances for Germany. He won a World Cup and European championship as well.
