Santo Andre: Goal-scoring machine Gerd Mueller was unkindly nicknamed 'short, fat Mueller' during his career, now Germany's latest hot-shot star has been dubbed 'El Flaco' -- the Skinny One -- by Argentina legend Maradona.

Thomas Mueller claimed the first hat-trick of these World Cup finals in Monday's 4-0 drubbing of Portugal in Germany's Group G opener in Salvador.

The Bayern Munich star, 24, is normally deployed as a winger or attacking midfielder and has only made rare appearances as striker for either club or country.
