The seasoned forward-tied 1998 world champion Henry for the most goals scored when he scored twice against Australia in Qatar 2022’s group stage, but he now leads the list after scoring against Poland in the round of 16 to move clear of Henry. On the brink of halftime, Giroud’s huge opportunity presented itself when the 36-year-old outran the offside trap and finished with a slick left foot.
