Giroud – We can kick on
France striker Olivier Giroud is confident France can follow up their World Cup success by winning the European Championships in 2020.
France achieved the same feat two decades ago and confidence is high amongst the French camp after their success this summer.
Giroud played a big part as he played in all seven games but his form in front of goal was disappointing.
The Chelsea star failed to score in Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Germany as France did enough to hang on to a draw in their opening UEFA Nations League clash.
Manager Didier Deschamps believes France have a bright future and Giroud is also confident they can dominate Europe in 2020.
He told reporters: ‘We have a lot of talented young players and will carry on like this.
‘We want to keep everyone from the World Cup at the Euros in 2020 – we are in a good place and we want to keep going.
‘Each team has its own style. We play with our quality, we know we are solid.
‘In the World Cup we were always ahead in every game, apart from nine minutes against Argentina. So we just had to keep the result. Sometimes you need to be clever.
