Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud hit his 40th goal for France in last night's victory over Croatia.
Giroud scored his 40th international goal as France beat Croatia 4-2 in the Nations League, in a repeat of the 2018 World Cup final.
Chelsea striker Giroud, 33, marked his 99th cap with a penalty after coming off the bench to move one goal behind France legend Michel Platini.
Arsenal great Thierry Henry holds the national record with 51 goals.
Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren had put Croatia ahead but the world champions were too strong.
Josip Brekalo equalised but goals by defender Dayot Upamecano and Giroud gave France the win which keeps them level on points with Portugal at the top of Group 3.
