In search of the place of top scorer in the history of the France team, Olivier Giroud came back up to Thierry Henry on the occasion of the first match of the group stage against Australia this Tuesday, November 22 thanks to a double.

In an interview given to Parisian this Monday, November 20, the striker of the France team and AC Milan spoke in particular about the continuation of his international career after the World Cup in Qatar and does not intend to retire, in particular to beat this record. “I don’t set myself any limits, replies the striker. I said it could be my last competition, but I don’t want to announce anything. I will play until my body says stop.

Afterwards, if I can get closer to him…” It’s already done
