Giroud: from not scoring in Russia 2018 to being the ‘9′ that doesn’t surprise Benzema

The goal rules. This is how Benzema does it with all his finery or an undervalued Olivier Giroud. Yes, the world champion who celebrated in Russia in 2018 without scoring a goal appeared four years later to score against Australia when France needed him most, when France was beginning to miss Benzema. With his double he leaves doubts aside.

Giroud is a true scorer, one of those who resist what they always put on him with the goal ahead. Because he came to Qatar on a good fight. Four goals in the last five games with Milan -three in the Champions League-, to repeat to Didier Deschamps that he can continue to count on him.

He was pointed out in Russia because in his seven games (six starts) he did not score a goal. ‘Barely’ provided an assist and had a percentage of 1.9 shots per game. But his work was another, just as important, so much so that he had 7-point performances against Argentina and Uruguay. The title was both his and Mbappé’s, the great figure.

The start was different in Qatar. Australia started with what seemed like a new World Cup coup. Goodwin’s goal just after 9 minutes made one imagine a new Arabia-Argentina game, but France adjusted the lines and found a prize.

The comeback was fast. Rabior at 27 matched it and Giroud at 32 turned it around. A great goal, a scorer, of 9. Waiting in my heart for an authorization. And the French are experts at that. Mbappé faced, surprised Rabior and defined Olivier.

And he reappeared to sentence the game. A Giroud-style header, taking advantage of a great center from Mbappé -his great partner of his?-. Kylian had scored the third and Olivier took charge of the fourth to say that the reigning champion is off to a strong start to his title defense.

“Bad news for France”, says the statistician Mr. Chip. This is because in the World Cups where ‘Le Bleus’ won the World Cup neither Stephane Guivarc (in 1998), nor Goirud himself (2018) had scored, but his team ended up celebrating.

Thus, Giroud today celebrates and makes France celebrate. In Brazil 2014 he had to score a goal, in Russia 2018 he went blank, but he was world champion. We’ll see what he gets in Qatar 2022. France is a candidate and Olivier aims to be a figure.
