Thomas Müller ascended to the top of Bayern Munich's all time Champions League goalscorers list after his penalty against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday. He was tied on 23 goals with former FC Bayern front man Mario Gomez for a little less than two months. Müller's last goal in the Champions League came in the 7-1 decimation of AS Roma.

Ever since he made his Bayern debut 2008, Müller has figured out how to score goals. It may come off his foot, his head, his shin, or his back, but it's going in the back of the net. In fact, there's a long standing movement on Twitter of #Müllered for everyone to share in the magnificence that is Thomas Müller

Still, one must remember that Müller just turned 25 years old in September. We luckily still have many more years of Müller goals to go.
