Here are the words of Didier Deschamps to Telefoot about the failure to summon Olivier Giroud to France
Among the disappointments of the last European there is certainly France. The transalpines, former world champions, were forced to abandon the continental event after the defeat in the round of 16 at the hands of Switzerland.
The non-golden period of France, however, also continued for the qualifiers for the next World Cup in Qatar in 2022: two 1 to 1 draws against Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina and a 2 to 0 victory against Finland.
Now the French selection can redeem the season in the Nations League. The transalpines will take the field next Thursday for the semifinals of the competition against Belgium. Whoever wins will play the final on Sunday evening against the winner of Italy Vs Spain.
For the two matches, France coach Didier Deschamps has called up the Rossoneri Theo Hernandez, but has decided to leave Olivier Giroud with Milanello. The striker born in ’86 did not well digest the failure to call up the national team but above all he did not like the fact that he was ignored by Deschamps who did not even call the former Chelsea to explain the reasons for the failure to call. To the microphones of Telefoot however, the former Juventus player and coach said he had no regrets: “What if I regret not talking to Giroud earlier? Not at all. I made my decisions, but there is certainly the possibility that Olivier will return to the team in the future ”.
An exclusion, therefore, of the not very good physical condition of the attacker who, at the moment is struggling with muscle problems, but if Giroud returns to being the scoring machine he saw at the beginning of the season, certainly Deschamps will call him back to the national team.
Theo Hernandez will find Mike Maignan, his teammate in the Rossoneri, at the retirement of France
