Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann smashed at home a well-deserved goal while on international duty for France against Croatia in the Nations League on Wednesday

Griezmann’s goal means he’s just a step away from David Trezeguet as the fourth-highest scorer in French history

The Frenchman’s strike should also bring some much-needed confidence Griezmann has yet to open his La Liga account for Barcelona in 2020-2021 despite the club starting all three of the club’s opening games

Griezmann has an impressive record with the national team, but coach Didier Deschamps warned the 29-year-old ahead of Wednesday’s game that didn’t mean he was guaranteed a place in his squad

“I know you watch the last game, but look at his stats: 81 caps, 32 goals, 21 assists It speaks for itself,” he said

“That doesn’t guarantee him anything, like some other players who could have done better against Portugal. I know his talent and what he can bring to the team”

Still, Deschamps kept his faith in Griezmann, selecting him in his starting XI, and was rewarded after just 11 minutes when the Barcelona striker leapt up The game is a repeat of the 2018 World Cup final in Russia that France won 4-2 Griezmann was also on target in the final with a penalty in the first half

Barcelona are hoping that Griezmann has now rediscovered his scoring touch and can stand out in La Liga There is fierce competition for places in attack, which means Griezmann is under pressure to perform

Griezmann has been the least impressive of Barca’s forwards in their first three games Ansu Fati already has three goals, Philippe Coutinho has two assists and one goal, while captain Lionel Messi has led by example

Meanwhile, new signings Pedri and Francisco Trincao are striving to make their first starts for the club after being substituted, while Ousmane Dembele is back in form and also has an option

Deschamps has claimed that Griezmann was not happy at Barcelona under Koeman after being played wide on the right rather than in a central position, and it remains to be seen whether the new manager will be able to make the most of the French this season
