Olivier Giroud will finally live a special 2023-2024 season with Euro. The 36-year-old France striker is still determined to show coach Didier Deschamps that he can be part of the adventure.
As long as there is will and physical ability, Olivier Giroud will continue to chase the goal. At 36, the AC Milan centre-forward shows no signs of fatigue or weakness.
On Thursday evening (US time), the best director in the history of the France team (54 goals in 124 appearances) “planted” against Juventus during a warm-up match played in Carson at the United States (2-2, from tab. 3 4).
The former Montpellier, Arsenal and Chelsea player scored from close range following a corner, helping the Rossoneri take the lead at the end of the first period (2-1, 39th).

An important message sent by Olivier Giroud to his coach Stefano Pioli to integrate him into the starting lineup, surrounded in attack by Portuguese Rafael Leao and American Christian Pulisic.
Giroud does not want to miss out on the last year of his contract with the Italian club, where he landed in the summer of 2021. Olivier Giroud will want the odds to be in his favor to play the Euro in Germany at the end of the season.

Blues coach, Didier. Deschamps knew very well his determination. But he will work with competition, especially that of keeper Randall Kolo Muani during France-Greece (1-0) at the Stade de France on June 19.
Olivier Giroud started in the last two games against Ireland and Gibraltar, who were also counting for Euro 2024 qualification. He is expected to play more.
