Football – French team: Olivier Giroud, a unique case that defies all logic – Eurosport FR


Olivier Giroud is world champion, he could become the top scorer in the history of the Blues this week, he gives satisfaction every time Didier Deschamps has called on him, his club dynamics have rarely been so good, no satisfactory solution n exists to replace him and he is in the last list before the World Cup. However, it is not certain that he will be in Qatar next November. More than a paradox or a mystery, Giroud is first and foremost a unique case which we no longer know how it will be resolved.Olivier GiroudCredit: Getty ImagesLeague of NationsMaintenance and Euro 2024, the other challenges for the BluesIL 20 HOURS AGOAfter reproaching him for his behavior at the Euro and his little sentence addressed to Mbappé (“he didn’t have to say that, it’s a certainty”) and weakened his future in Blue (“Olivier and a few others , it was in 2018, but today we are in 2021”), Didier Deschamps ended up calling him back in March after Karim Benzema’s withdrawal. Holder and scorer in the two friendly matches, he no longer appeared on the list in June thanks to the return of the Madrid player. Why relaunch him in September? KB9 still absent at the start of the school year, Giroud is back in a status with vague contours. And it was not Didier Deschamps, somewhat tense when approaching the subject, who was responsible for dispelling the fog: “The answer, you will have it in two months. Everything is changing. And nothing is changing. , sometimes. Because if I say that “everything evolves”, you will interpret… The situation today is that it is there”. The sibylline coach voluntarily maintains the blur. If his life at the head of the Blues has taught him one thing, it’s never to be definitive in order to always find a way out. The Benzema episode, banned for years before returning as nothing had happened, is only the latest example. Can Giroud really dream of Qatar? “Deschamps reminded Benzema well…” Is the presence of Giroud in the group and in the list for the World Cup only the consequence of Benzema’s state of health? At first, yes. It is in any case the meaning of the choices of Deschamps for six months. Otherwise, why deprive the Milanese of the rally in June even though he had done the job perfectly in March and had just actively participated in the title of champion of the Rossoneri? But why relaunch him in September, two months before the capital deadline if Deschamps only counts on him in the absence of Benzema even though the Madrid native is more likely to be present than absent in Qatar ?Who else?Objectively, and beyond all considerations of group life, Olivier Giroud is today the only credible and high-level solution behind Karim Benzema. Just compare his goal average per match in selection with that of his competitors who only have the name but not the stuff.Olivier Giroud: 0.43 goal / match

If he made a successful debut in the Bundesliga, the former Nantes player was himself surprised to be called up so early in the selection (“sincerely, I didn’t see anything coming (…). It happened faster than expected and I did not expect it to happen in 2022”) and it is hard to imagine him making the weight with Giroud when it comes to choosing a Benzema understudy for Qatar. But as the case of the world champion is unique, as the logic to which he responds is difficult to identify, to be so categorical would be furiously unwise.
