If DD has trouble deciding, some observers have no trouble supporting Giroud. This is the case of Paolo Maldini, who indicated in remarks reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport : “Giroud is a champion, period. The main characteristic of a champion is to be humble and to work for the team, that’s Olivier. In difficult times, who shows up? The Champions. That’s what he did, he showed up in those moments. ». Words that will please the main interested party, who will have a new chance to prove his worth and make an impression this Sunday evening against Denmark. With his 49 goals scored in the France team, Giroud is only two small achievements from Thierry Henry’s record. At 35, an absence from the World Cup could seal his fate with the Blues. Frustrating given the record that the former Montpellier player can beat, if he does not succeed this Sunday in Denmark.
