Klose´s past deeds shouldn´t play a big role for the present and future German team imho. The way I see it, Gomez has a slight edge now and if the season progresses with Gomez staying healthy and in form, it´s very likely he will stay in Jogi Löw´s first XI! Btw I am not saying Klose is bad, but when both are in form then Gomez is a world class striker and Klose a level below that in my opinion. To put it simply. Klose is a good striker for the NT, who is quite reliable. With Gomez, when playing with confidence, we have imho an upgrade to Klose in every way, besides some little short passing. In a way to let Klose in the first XI is a bit like like letting Mertesacker in the team, instead of Hummels, but well that´s another story(poll).
