Olivier Giroud made French football history by becoming the all-time top scorer with a goal against Poland in the World Cup.
The former Arsenal and Chelsea striker put the Blues ahead at half-time by collecting the ball from Kylian Mbappe inside before kicking it past Wojciech Szczesny.
This means Giroud now has 52 goals for France, which puts him ahead of former record holder Thierry Henry.
“Giroud is a fantastic player, he’s underrated,” former England international Lianne Sanderson said in commentary for talkSPORT 2. “He always scores… his one-touch game is really good.
“The best, the best players choose their moments and he has his goal even if he hasn’t really scored it.”
Giroud entered the tournament with 49 goals for his country, but his brace against Australia put him level with Henry.
He is now the record holder as he gave his side an advantage in a game which saw them dominate possession but came very close to falling behind, but Hugo Lloris did well to block Piotr’s shot on goal Zielinski before the ball was taken away.
