Olivier Giroud has made historical past by overtaking Henry and sending France to the quarterfinals of the World Cup.
With the 2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema out of the World Cup in Qatar via damage, France have been counting on Olivier Giroud to guide the front-line within the event, and to date the Milan striker has been unimaginable.
After two objectives within the Group Stage, Giroud final night time scored France’s first objective of the night as they beat Poland 3-1 within the Spherical of 16 to advance to the Quarterfinals, the place they face England on Saturday, December 10.
This objective was particularly particular, because it was Giroud’s 52 objective for France, making him the nation’s all-time prime scorer, overtaking Thierry Henry who scored 51 for Les Bleus. An overjoyed Oli G spoke to the media after the press, and in addition talked in Italian to Rai Sport:
“Once I acquired the ball, I didn’t know if there was a defender behind me or not, so I needed to flip and shoot. As we speak’s objective is just like the one within the derby final 12 months in opposition to Inter. I didn’t hit it that nicely, however my pal Wojciech Szczęsny was unable to get to it,” the 36-year-old stated.
Milan are proud of Giroud, who’s on his second 12 months on the membership and are working to increase his deal.
