On the eve of the trip to Denmark, France national team coach Didier Deschamps expanded on the case of his striker Olivier Giroud. A time closed to the idea of incorporating the AC Milan player into his group in a role of luxury joker in the World Cup, the Blues coach no longer avoids seeing the reflection of him again.
Giroud offered a goal 49 in the selection against Austria (2-0).
He knows what I think. I am not going to reopen the debate in relation to the statute. It is not specific to Olivier Giroud. There are several players, since I’ve been there, that I haven’t taken in in relation to his condition. Even if it didn’t get as much media coverage. Olivier’s goal here is to do his best to act. As much for him as for the others, there is competition and it will be necessary to choose.
After calling up Olivier Giroud to compensate for the absence of an injured Karim Benzema for the September rally, Didier Deschamps quickly laid the foundations last week: the truth of the moment will not represent the one in November, nor the World Cup in Qatar. In other words, the AC Milan striker will have to prove himself on the pitch, but also off it.
The World Cup, Deschamps opens the door Giroud
And obviously, the former Montpellier player seems to be taking his challenge well at the moment. Impeccable in his behavior since his arrival at Clairefontaine last Monday, the Rossoneri also shone on the pitch by scoring his 49th goal against Austria (2-0) in the Nations League, but also making his teammates shine of the. A successful performance that visibly satisfied the coach, ready to review his judgment for the World Cup?
There is a lot of support for Oliver and he deserves it, “DD” released this Saturday at a press conference. It is a fact, I do not involve the players in the selection or selection of the players. It’s not his role. Good for Oliver. At certain moments, he could have counted on that support. Olivier, him to keep. He knows what he is capable of doing, he has affinities with players more than with others but he has always had a collective spirit. Reply in early November. Therefore, the door seems, at least, ajar for the world champion.
The Blues group is conquered
And obviously, the 2nd top scorer in the history of the French team seems willing to do anything to convince his coach to take him to Qatar. The two men also argued. We brought up the subject and I told him that whatever role I had in this team, I would be 200% behind the team, without any state of mind in relation to my role, my little person if I may, because it is the group that prevails, that is all, promised the 35-year-old center forward on RTL radio. For their part, the players of the France team seem conquered.
While Jonathan Clauss highlighted the warrior mentality Giroud on Thursday night, or that Mbappé went there with his positive words, current Blues captain Raphal Varane also added his own message. Obviously he is a very important player for the group, because of his calm and his experience. He has that desire as an 18-year-old coming in for his first pick. (…) he is someone appreciated, respect, obviously we want to see him as often as possible in the blue shirt., the Manchester United central defender told reporters. Suffice it to say that by showing his lead against Denmark on Sunday (8:45pm), whoever is having a roaring start to the season in Serie A will inflict additional headaches on Deschamps.
In your opinion, should Deschamps take Giroud to the World Cup? Would leaving the Milanais dock represent a monumental mistake? Do not hesitate to react and comment in the area. add a comment …
