Sao Paulo - Former Brazil striker Ronaldo says he will be cheering against Miroslav Klose in his attempt to break the Brazilian's all-time scoring record in World Cups.

The Germany forward needs to score at least once in the tournament in Brazil to equal Ronaldo's record of 15 World Cup goals.

The Brazilian is publicly saying that he doesn't want to see that happen, and recently told fans in Fortaleza, where Germany will play Ghana in Group G, that they should "cheer against" Klose in the match.

The former striker said he knows the record will eventually be broken, but hopes it's not in Brazil.

He said that even if the record does fall, "nobody is going to take away what I did, no matter what, I'm proud of that."
