Speaking to Téléfoot before France’s Nations League fixture against Denmark on Sunday evening, Olivier Giroud spoke on the potential to equal Thierry Henry’s goalscoring record for France in the fixture.
“I don’t know if I’ll match the record against Denmark at all. But in any case, I’m getting closer to him, it’s a huge pride. Titi Henry is a legend of French football.”
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.
