Antoine Griezmann finally scores in a friendly, his first goal since January


The striker of Les Bleus Amis put an end to a shortage which seemed interminable. Antoine Griezmann scored this Thursday evening for the first time in

210 days without scoring: every striker's nightmare.

This is what Antoine Griezmann experienced this year, before ending his black series in a friendly match against Cadiz, during the Ramon Carranza Trophy.

This Thursday, the French international was doubly decisive in the 4-1 victory of the Colchoneros.

With a goal and an assist, the 31-year-old striker was full of confidence, just over a week before the resumption of La Liga.

After serving Alvaro Morata for the opener (13′), he finally found the back of the net in the 51st minute.

Before that, we had to go back to January 6 to find the trace of a goal from number 8 of Atlético Madrid, his only one in 2022 until recently.

He then scored against Rajo Majadahonda, a Spanish 3rd division club, in the Copa del Rey.

In La Liga, "Grizou" has not been a scorer since November 28, 2021, against Cadiz again.

He was also the author of only three small league goals during the 2021-2022 edition.

With the Blues, the third top scorer in the history of the France team has remained silent since November 13, 2021, and his participation in an 8-0 victory against Kazakhstan.

Worrying statistics, just over 3 months from the next World Cup, from November 21 to December 18, in Qatar.
