Translation Question - French

I have a french oral presentation tomorrow and I've just finished translating and adding to my speech. But there is one sentence I'm having difficultly with. My subject is on France's National Football team.

The sentence is, "Their top scorer is Thierry Henry with 45 goals and France’s most successful years were the generation of Zinedine Zidane."

So far I have, "Leur « top scorer » est Thierry Henry avec 45 buts et les années les plus réussies de la France étaient la génération de Zinedine Zidane."

How does one say "top scorer" in french?
