Olivier Giroud cemented his status as a France icon by scoring his 51st international goals in a 4-1 win over Australia on Tuesday night.
Giroud’s brace in the World Cup Group D saw him draw level with former striker and legend Thierry Henry as France’s all-time leading scorer.
The AC Milan striker actually boasts a superior record than his former Arsenal teammate because his 51 goals have come in just 115 games, while Henry retired having played 123 times for France.
Giroud, 36, will likely to overtake Henry outright if France enjoy a positive World Cup campaign in Qatar.
Mbappe also scored in Tuesday’s victory over Australia to take his international scoring tally to 28 goals in 59 matches.
