Present at a press conference, Olivier Giroud then trained with the France group on Thursday. The opportunity for the AC Milan striker to provide a new scare to the tricolor staff. Two days after Christopher Nkunku’s injury at Clairefontaine just before leaving for Qatar, Olivier Giroud remained on the ground for a few moments for the first session of the Blues since their arrival in the Emirate.
After removing his shoe grimacing and receiving some care, he finally got up and resumed the collective session. More fear than harm in the end for the 36-year-old Frenchman. For the rest, Karim Benzema and Raphaël Varane, currently in the recovery phase, have trained on the sidelines.
