Thierry Henry scored 51 goals for France in 123 appearances.

Thierry Henry is a retired French international footballer. During his international career he played 123 games for France in which he scored 51 goals.[1] Henry made his international debut against South Africa in a 2–1 victory in October 1997.[2] His first international goal came in the 1998 FIFA World Cup against South Africa.[2] As of October 2015 he is France's top scorer and second in the list of appearances for his country.[3] He surpassed the previous all-time French goal-scoring record, held by Michel Platini, in October 2007 when he scored twice against Lithuania, taking his tally to 43. Henry retired from international football in July 2010 after a 13-year career, making his final appearance as a substitute, against South Africa, in France's "disastrous" 2010 FIFA World Cup campaign. Henry scored his 51st and final goal for France against Austria the preceding October.[2]

Henry never scored an international hat-trick, although he did score twice in a match on seven occasions.[1] He scored more times against Malta than any other team, with four goals, scored in back-to-back qualifiers for UEFA Euro 2004.[1] More than half of Henry's goals came in home matches, 31 of his 51 goals being scored in France, including 20 at the Stade de France.[1]

16 of Henry's goals came in friendlies.[1] A tally of four goals in the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup made Henry the tournament's top scorer and led to his being voted the "tournament's most outstanding player".[4] He scored twelve goals in UEFA European Championship qualifiers, including six in the qualification phase of UEFA Euro 2004, where he finished as third-equal top scorer, behind Slovenia's Ermin Šiljak and Spain's Raúl.[5]
