Defending champions France stormed into the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup after they beat Poland 3-1 at Al Thumama Stadium in Qatar on Sunday.
A 44th minute goal from French striker Olivier Giroud, backed by a two powerful strikes from Kylian Mbappe in the 74th and 91st minutes, assured them a spot in the final eight.
Poland skipper Robert Lewandowski scored a 99th minute penalty to grab a consolation goal just before his team’s exit from the competition.
Giroud’s goal saw him overtake Thierry Henry’s record as France’s all-time top scorer, as he netted his 52nd for Les Bleus.
