Speaking to Téléfoot before France’s match tonight against Denmark in the Nations League, Olivier Giroud spoke about the uncertainty surrounding whether he will make it into manager Didier Deschamps’ final World Cup squad to to take to Qatar in November.
Giroud: “Now, as he (Deschamps) says, there are things that change and things that don’t. He leaves it in doubt.”
Téléfoot Journalist: “Is it frustrating to live with this uncertainty?”
Giroud: “Yes it is frustrating… Look, once again, what matters is what happens on the field. I’m focused on what I have to do, and then the manager will decide.”
Former Chelsea and Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud emerged as an instrumental figure for France in their game against Austria on Thursday evening.
According to what is reported by L’Équipe, Giroud could start Sunday’s game against Denmark on the bench. The report understands that Christopher Nkunku could get the nod over the 35-year-old.
The Milan forward had one of his best games for the national side during the midweek. From orchestrating the holdup play by being the focal point in Les Bleus’ attack to scoring the second goal of the night for the home side, Giroud proved his credibility as a striker in their 2-0 win over Austria.
