(VIDEO) Watch:France vs Poland Goals and Extended Highlights : Giroud and Mbappe put France through to World Cup quarterfinals
As France ousted Poland from the World Cup Round of 16, Kylian Mbappe scored twice and Olivier Giroud broke the country’s all-time scoring record.
After struggling to create an impact against a limited but tenacious Polish team, Giroud’s goal just before halftime turned the game in France’s favour. With his 52nd goal for his nation, the AC Milan forward passed Thierry Henry in the all-time Les Bleus list. He fired a close-range shot past Wojciech Szczesny.
As France broke out from the back, Giroud assisted Mbappe in scoring the second goal. The PSG star slammed a shot high past Szczesny.
Mbappe second goal was even better. Despite the Poland goalkeeper getting a finger on it, he moved the ball from left to right before curling a shot high into the other corner.
Robert Lewandowski scored a consolation penalty in stoppage time that had to be taken twice after Hugo Lloris had moved off his line in saving Lewandowski’s first attempt.
