Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud became France’s second highest goal-scorer of all time  surpassing Michel Platini  in a friendly hammering of Ukraine.

The 34 year-old scored twice in the first half to take his tally to 42 on his 100th international appearance, nine adrift of Thierry Henry’s record.

Teenager Eduardo Camavinga, 17, netted the opener on his full debut to become France’s second-youngest scorer.

Corentin Tolisso, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann all found the net.

Didier Deschamps’ side also benefited from Vitaliy Mykolenko’s own goal and although Viktor Tsygankov pulled a goal back for 4-1, the visitors were outclassed in Paris.

The thrashing marked the worst defeat in Ukraine’s history, with the side now managed by former AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.
