If he no longer enters the first choices of Didier Deschamps, the French center-forward of AC Milan Olivier Giroud has not lost hope of playing, at 36, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar .
Will Olivier Giroud play a third World Cup with the France team? Less than three months before the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar (November 21-December 18), there is more chance of seeing the 35-year-old Milanese watching the event in front of his TV than on Qatari grounds with the Blues. In the mind of Didier Deschamps, the former Gunner is no longer a first choice since the Euro last year.
« I do not give a wild card for life », had dropped the Basque in December in Rothen ignites. This did not prevent him from recalling Olivier Giroud, performing with the Rossoneri, a few months later, in March. The player with 112 caps took the opportunity to score twice and come within three goals of record holder Thierry Henry (51).
« I’m not going to say that I don’t think about it »
Not summoned by Didier Deschamps for the four games in June, the Milanese has little chance of being on the trip to Qatar. But he still and always clings to his dream. And wants to believe in his lucky star: « Obviously it must be a goal as a selectable competitor, he confirms to Téléfoot before the Milan derby against Inter, Saturday (4 p.m.). With the history which is mine in the France team, having the possibility of playing in a third World Cup, it’s a chance. I’m not going to say that I don’t think about it. » The message to DD is passed.
