France finished the year on a high by beating European champions Greece 1-0 at the Stade de France courtesy of a Thierry Henry goal in a friendly on Wednesday. The striker was on target in the 26th minute when he headed home a Willy Sagnol cross from the right to net his 39th goal for Les Bleus, two shy of Michel Platini's record 41. Captain Patrick Viera also had several chances during his 100th cap in a one-sided match against a team who beat France 1-0 in the quarter-finals on their way to winning Euro 2004. Before kick off the fans paid tribute to the players who helped France win the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.
