The record belongs to Olivier Giroud.
the top scorer in men’s national team history for France.
He has overtaken Thierry Henry and cemented his place in history. Well done, he.
But his name won’t be there for long. On the night that Giroud cemented his place in history, Kylian Mbappe served as a warning to everyone that he will soon surpass that record and many others.
Giroud’s record-breaking goal was assisted by Mbappe, who then scored two incredible goals of his own in France’s 3-1 victory over Poland in the World Cup’s round of 16.
In fact, Mbappe’s goals in the second half set a few records for himself. He has surpassed Pele in terms of the most World Cup goals scored before the age of 24 and is the first Frenchman to score four goals at consecutive World Cups.
With Mbappe in this form, France, the defending champions, will go into their quarterfinal matchup against England or Senegal in a confident frame of mind.
