France’s Giroud Out of Germany Friendly With Thigh Injury
Written by Morenike Adebayo 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.
