Olivier Giroud: “I want to leave my mark on the history of French football.”

Speaking in an interview with Le Dauphiné Libéré, Chelsea and France striker Olivier Giroud discussed his continuing ambitions within his professional career, despite the fact that he is set to turn 34 this year.

“I have 97 caps (for France) and I had hoped to hit the 100 bar during the squad elections in March and June. This is only a postponement… In terms of the number of goals, I am only two away from Michel Platini (39 goals vs 41 goals), which is also clearly an objective… I want to become a champion of Europe with the French national team next year.”
