Olivier Giroud scored against Poland in the Round of 16 on Saturday at the Al Thumama Stadium, passing Thiery Henry’s record to become France’s all-time leading scorer with 52 goals.
Giroud scored a brace in France’s World Cup opener against Australia to tie Henry’s record of 51 goals. And now he has scored against Poland in the knockout stage to give France the first-half lead.
Giroud made his international debut with France in 2011 but didn’t score his first goal for Les Bleus until February 2012, when he scored against Germany in a friendly.
After 116 appearances, he currently holds the record for goals scored and, despite being 36 years old, still has the look of a striker of the highest caliber.
