Watch: Giroud equals Henry’s record with second goal against Australia

By Oliver Fisher -

Olivier Giroud drew level with Thierry Henry’s record as France’s all-time top goalscorer as he netted a brace against Australia.

Giroud’s goal from inside the box had given France the lead and he put the game to bed for Les Blues with a trademark powerful header from close range to net his 51st goal for his country and thus draw level with Henry’s record, also becoming the tournament’s joint-top scorer too.

  1. Yes well done Thea and Olivier..both class .
    France such an exciting team .plenty of goals from Oliver Giroud for AC Milan too come .

  2. The game today showed what Giroud can do when he gets service. We need a true right winger and a good central attacking midfielder to service more balls to Giroud.

    Theo Hernandez did make a mistake in Australia’s goal but after that he was brilliant; great assist to Giroud, and several passes to his companions that could have been assists if they had scored, including a phenomenal one to Giroud that the latter tried to score off with a bicycle kick and missed by not much; it would have been the most beautiful goal of the WC!

    Both Milan men were fantastic today! I’m proud of them!

    1. Oops, correction. Theo did not make a mistake in Australia’s goal. He wasn’t playing yet at that point. The mistake was by his brother, before he got injured. Theo did make a mistake that almost resulted in a goal by Duke, but it did not. From that point on, Theo was a monster.

      1. And Theo’s assist is for Rabiot’s goal. Giroud’s goal is assist from Rabiot. Its Serie A Connection for France in first half… 👏👏👏👏👏👏

  3. I think Oli will retire Ibra this season. Ibra will retire when he see someone better than him, and by far Oli is a beast this season. 36 years old, played as starter in most of the game for Milan, scored important goals, scored for french in world cup. He is like reborn after bad chelsea spell in his career.
