Spanish La Liga Santander giant, FC Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann was in action yesterday against Bosnia and Herzegovina in the third game of the European World Cup Qualifiers at the Grbavica Stadium.

The Didier Deschamp's side were very dominant in the show of the night with their classic and dazzling displays in the thrilling encounter that ended one nil.

The former Atletico Madrid striker was the saviour and hero of the night with his only goal separating the two sides at full time, to earned the whole three points for the Les Bleus.

The game was so intensed that there was nothing to separate the two sides in the first 45 minutes as it ended goalless at half time.

In the second half, none was able to break the deadlock until the 60th minutes when Antoine Griezmann stepped up to net the only and winning goal of the night to make it one nil with an assist from Adrien Rabiot.

Antoine Griezmann with the crucial and only goal of the game now breaks a record he equalled in their previous game by becoming the outright 4th top scorer in France's history, as only Thierry Henry, Michel Platini and Olivier Giroud have more than the Barcelona ace.

This means that Antoine Griezmann has surpassed David Trezeguet's record of 34 goals as the joint fourth top scorers, with his goal against Bosnia and Herzegovina his 35th for France making him the fourth all-time leading goal scorer in France's history.

Thierry Henry—51

Olivier Giroud—43

Michel Platini—41

Antoine Griezmann—35

David Trezeguet—34.

After reaching this remarkable feat for France, Griezmann updated a post via his verified Instagram handle to celebrate the important victory.

The post has generated a lot of reactions with the likes of former Dutch player, Patrick Kluivert and fellow national and club teammate, Ousmane Dembele reacting with love and fire emojis to commend the forward enigma for the job well done.

Other fans also commented;

The win for France means they now sit at the top of Group D with 7 points in 3 games played - 4 points cleared ahead of second place Ukraine with 3 points in 3 games.
