Germany international Thomas Muller has set his sights on winning the Golden Boot again at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The Bayern Munich attacker scored five goals and gave three assists to pip David Villa, Wesley Sneijder and Diego Forlan to the individual award at the 2010 tournament in South Africa and he's keen to become the first player in history to win the trophy twice in a row.

"Subconsciously, defending the Golden Boot at the World Cup is on my mind," Muller was quoted as saying by SID.

"I know that this might not be the most realistic objective, though.

"Nobody has ever done it before and there have been some amazing goals corers at the World Cup over the years.

"But I will give it my all to meet my objective and perhaps I can help the team with a few goals."

Germany will meet Portugal, Ghana and USA in the group stages at the 2014 World Cup.
