Giroud could not have helped the Blues …

Not summoned to the French team, Olivier Giroud tested positive for Covid-19, announces AC Milan. The tricolor striker will have to isolate himself.

Inevitably, his name returned to the debate. Olivier Giroud, now not summoned to the France team by Didier Deschamps, could undoubtedly have helped the Blues on Wednesday night against Bosnia (1-1), in particular to attack the low block of Edin Dzeko’s teammates and bring presence in the area. The Mbappé-Griezmann-Benzema trio not having convinced.

Giroud offers a fairly rare profile among French attackers, but if ever Deschamps had wanted to call on him for this rally (which we strongly doubt), for example to replace an injured Mbappé, this is no longer possible. THE’AC Milan announces this Thursday that the former Montpellier has tested positive for Covid-19, and will have to isolate himself.

Well beyond the France team, it is a hard blow for Giroud on a personal level. The world champion, who arrived from Chelsea this summer, had a very convincing start to the season in Italy. He only has ten days to get back on his feet before the shock of the third day of Serie A between AC Milan and Lazio, Sunday, September 12, at the end of the international break.
