Griezmann not obsessed to beat Henry’s goal record for France

Antoine Griezmann is more concerned with coming out on top versus Spain while he is high on France’s scoring chart. Antoine Griezmann is close to beating Thierry Henry’s goal scoring record for France but he isn’t obsessed as he approaches 100 international caps. If Griezmann plays in the Nations League final football match on Sunday, he will have an opportunity to win silverware, with Les Bleus having set up a showdown with Spain courtesy to a stunning comeback victory over Belgium.

Didier Deschamps’ team trailed 2-0 at halftime but came back to win the game in the second half. Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe scored to square the scores before Theo Hernandez proved to be the unlikely hero, scoring a 90th-minute winner. For the national team Griezmann was unable to add to his 41 goals, leaving him 10 goals below Henry’s career total.

“It is close, but it is not a goal that obsesses me,” the Atletico Madrid forward told the media on Friday. “I go games without shooting on goal, which shows how much it is not an obsession. Ten goals is not a lot, but also a lot at the same time. We’re going to take it easy.” On nearing a century of appearances, Griezmann said: “I always like being in the France team, I’m always proud to wear these colours.

“I always love football, I’m with this locker room, the staff too. I have a little more experience and am a world champion, but otherwise, I’m always the same, trying to give the best of myself offensively or defensively, compared to what the team needs. I am very proud and very happy. I hope it will end well with a cup and a party after the game.”
