Miroslav Klose is playing to help Germany become world champions and is not thinking about personal glory.
The Poland-born hit-man took his World Cup tally to 14 goals following his brace against Argentina on Saturday.
Klose is now just one World Cup goal behind the competition's all-time leading scorer, Brazilian Ronaldo.
Germany face Spain in the second semi-final on Wednesday and Klose insists he is only worrying about helping secure his country's place in the final.
"I don't know whether I am going to pass Ronaldo's record, and I don't really care," said Klose.
"I didn't think about the record beforehand. I just wanted to win the game.
"I am more interested in what we do as a team. If we end this tournament winning the World Cup that would be far more important than any goals I score."
Klose could not contain his excitement over Germany's stunning quarter-final performance in which they put Argentina to the sword with a thumping 4-0 success.
"Argentina are a good side but we played as a team today," he continued. "We were excellent.
"Now we have two games left. If we win them both we will be world champions."
