Olivier Giroud made history on Sunday by taking the title of France's all-time top male goalscorer by finding the net against Poland at the World Cup.

The AC Milan striker was level with Thierry Henry coming into France's fourth match of the tournament, and became the outright holder after his goal at the Al Thumama Stadium.

Giroud, 36, scored his first international goal in France's friendly win over Germany in February 2012, and over the past decade, he has climbed through the rankings, getting his 52nd goal for his country against Poland with a simple, classy finish to give Les Bleus the edge in the last-16 clash.
