Episode Summary

Gerd Mueller - West Germany, 1974
After a 10-goal performance in the 1970 World Cup, Mueller delivered four more in 1974, and though the number wasn't as high, his final goal was his biggest. Tied 1-1 with the Netherlands in the first half, Germany relied on Mueller to provide the winner. With a juke that left behind two Dutch defenders, Mueller streamed into the area and scored the winner just before halftime. It was his last goal ever for Germany, as he retired the day after the final. His 14 career World Cup goals stood as the record until Ronaldo broke it in 2006.moreless
