EdF: Retirement after Qatar, Olivier Giroud is choking

Probable holder at the forefront of the attack of the Blues in the absence of Karim Benzema during the World Cup, Olivier Giroud will be eagerly awaited.

It must be said that the center-forward of AC Milan and the French team has been in resplendent form for several weeks. That’s good, Didier Deschamps will need his services during this World Cup in Qatar. Not in the coach’s plans a few months ago, Olivier Giroud will start this 2022 World Cup in the shoes of a holder due to Karim Benzema’s package. At the age of 36, the Milan striker will be keen to shine for what will certainly be his last World Cup. In an interview with Le Parisien, Olivier Giroud nevertheless refused to talk about stopping his international career after the World Cup. The 2018 world champion is still hungry and he lets it be known.

Giroud refuses to discuss international retirement

“I don’t set myself any limits. I said it could be my last competition, but I don’t feel like announcing anything. I will play until my body says stop. I have been in the selection for eleven years now. My competitive spirit constantly pushes me to seek even more. I thirst for victories. Of trophies. At my age, being able to be so decisive and feeling good is a real joy. Beating Titi’s record would be a bonus, but the main objective is to go as far as possible with the team by contributing my stone to the building. Afterwards, if I can get closer to him” confided Olivier Giroud, who is only two goals away from Thierry Henry to become the top scorer in the history of the French team. Let’s hope for the Blues that Giroud overtakes Henry during the World Cup in Qatar. It would then be a very good sign for the French team…
