Ronaldo is the FIFA World Cup’s  all-time leading scorer with 15 goals, and the Brazilian has also scored in more World Cup matches (11) than any other player.

Both records could, though, come under threat during Brazil 2014, with Germany’s Miroslav Klose having scored 14 times across nine different matches.

The record for a single tournament is held by French legend Just Fontaine, who found the net 13 times in 1958, while Sandor Kocsis – with 11 goals in just five appearances – boasts the tournament’s best scoring average.
