Olivier Giroud intends to be present at EURO 2021, despite the delay

Speaking to L’Équipe, a member of 33-year-old French international and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud’s entourage insisted that the player still wants to play the next European Championships, despite the decision to postpone the tournament by 12 months owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“He still had the idea to continue to fight and enjoy himself (after this summer). He also had the ambition of putting pressure on the younger players in the national team by saying to them “you are strong and you have the future in front of you but I am still here to push you.” Now, next season, he will have an additional challenge, to jump on the wagon that leads to the Euros.”
