What more can we say that the general public does not know about Olivier Giroud's state of mind? Replacing and downgraded in the hierarchy of the Blues since the resounding return of Karim Benzema, the second highest scorer in the history of the France team provided his answer on Tuesday evening.

Henry, and the feeling of duty accomplished. Ovationed by the French public present for the occasion, his partners and in particular his friend Hugo Lloris, not to mention Didier Deschamps, the lanky 34-year-old scorer could not have chosen a better time to position himself,before leaving for Germany for the shock of June 15 at the opening of the Euro. If some doubted it, the answer is there. Scathing. We will have to rely on Olivier Giroud this summer.
