EdF: Giroud blacklisted, Riolo is already crying scandal

Holder against Austria on Thursday evening, Olivier Giroud produced a very good performance, concluded with a sumptuous goal from the head.

Sometimes criticized, not always in the first choices of the coach, Olivier Giroud never disappoints when he wears the jersey of the French team. The AC Milan striker lived up to his reputation on Thursday night against Austria in the Nations League (2-0). Author of a splendid goal from the head, following a good cross from Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud has established himself as a natural candidate in attack with a view to the 2022 World Cup. Since the Euro, Didier Deschamps, however, never called Olivier Giroud when Karim Benzema was fit. Will he change his tune for the World Cup in Qatar? Wondering about the subject, Daniel Riolo did not hide that he would be very disappointed if Giroud did not play in the World Cup. The consultant even believes that a non-selection of the Milan striker in November would be a real scandal.

Riolo scandalized if Giroud does not make the World Cup

“It really wouldn’t make sense to leave Giroud at home for the World Cup. It would even be totally unfair to him, really. Instead of Giroud, I freak out and send heavy if I’m not taken for the World Cup. I couldn’t understand why he wasn’t selected. Giroud a ball for Benzema? I don’t think Benzema has any demands. He returned after five years of absence, he is very happy to be here and Benzema is not a pain in the ass, he is not a guy who has such high standards. I don’t think Benzema can be inhibited by the presence of Giroud with the level he has now.” analyzed Daniel Riolo after the deserved victory of the French team over Austria. It now remains to be seen if Didier Deschamps will choose to take Olivier Giroud to the World Cup alongside Karim Benzema, or if the coach considers that the AC Milan striker does not have the temperament to be a substitute in a big competition.
