France’s Giroud Out of Germany Friendly With Thigh Injury

Written by on November 13, 2017

France and Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been ruled out of Tuesday’s friendly against Germany with a thigh injury and has returned to the Premier League club for treatment, the French Football Federation (FFF) has said.


The thirty-one-year-old scored his twenty-ninth goal for France during Friday’s two-nil win over Wales but was substituted in the seventy-third minute due to the injury.


Giroud, who has scored three goals for Arsenal this season, could be a doubt for the north London derby at home against fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the league on Saturday.


France manager Didier Deschamps is yet to call up a replacement for his side’s clash with the world champions.
