Klose scored in the 87th minute of Lazio's 2-1 defeat to Cesena on Sunday.

Klose's late goal prolonged an enjoyable recent stretch from the German, who has now scored three goals to go with an assist over his past five matches. On the whole, the proven 36-year-old has supplied a commendable return of seven goals and four assists across 18 total matches; however, this season's addition of top striker Filip Djordjevic has often resulted in Klose being relegated to a more suitable reserve role.

Klose, who scored 16 goals in a span of four World Cups, tallied 71 goals in 137 international matches throughout his illustrious career. He'll play one more season with Lazio before hanging up his boots for good.
