World Cup Round-Up: Olivier Giroud Equals Thierry Henry As All-Time Goalscorer For France

Olivier Giroud has equalled Thierry Henry as all-time goalscorer for France after finding Australia’s goal post to net his 51st score.

Gatekeepers News reports that Giroud who didn’t have a shot on target in the last World Cup got a brace at the ongoing Qatar 2022 on Tuesday.

Many had assumed Karim Benzema’s absence from the French team would be the beginning of their doom at the tournament, Giroud has however proven this wrong.

Giroud put his first score at the 31st minute to give France a lead after Rabiot’s equaliser, and netted his second and final goal of the match after Kylian Mbappe’s, making the scoreline 4-1. All these brought Craig Goodwin’s opener goal for Australia to naught technically.

After barring Brazil in 2006, every World Cup winner since 1998 has crashed out in the group stages.

It’s a trend that began with France in 2002. The question is if it will end with them 20 years after.
