Antoine Griezmann scored a stunner for France in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday against Ukraine in Paris.

The Barcelona attacker was named in the starting XI and broke the deadlock after 19 minutes with a great strike into the top corner.

The goal takes Griezmann joint fourth on France’s list of all-time goalscorers with 34 for Les Bleus. Only Michel Platini, Olivier Giroud and Thierry Henry have more.

Ukraine hit back in the second half with Serhiy Sydorchuk’s shot taking a big deflection off Paris Saint-Germain’s Presnel Kimpembe and wrong-footing Hugo Lloris.

France couldn’t find a winner after being pegged back and had to settle for a draw. Griezmann played the whole 90 minutes, while Ousmane Dembele came off the bench on 64 minutes and made his first appearance for his country since November 2018.
