The 36-year-old scored his first international goal in France’s friendly win over Germany in February 2012, and over the past decade, he has climbed through the rankings, getting his 52nd goal for his country against Poland with a simple, classy finish to give Les Bleus the edge in the last-16 clash.

Throughout more than a decade with France, he has made 116 appearances, scoring just one hat-trick, against Paraguay in a friendly in June 2017.
