AC Milan striker Giroud: I know Henry happy with my goalscoring

AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud says Thierry Henry is in regular contact.

Giroud equalled Henry's record goal tally for France thanks to his brace against Australia earlier this week and will become the country's best scorer in history with his next goal for Les Blues.

“Every time I score a goal for club or country, Thierry has the habit of sending me a text to congratulate me, it's always a pleasure coming from him," said Giroud.

“A striker always wants to make a difference with goals. I didn't have the opportunity to do it yesterday, but I'm happy for Kylian [Mbappé].

“I tried to help the team, Ideally, I would have liked to score the 52nd goal, but I have to be patient."
