Olivier Giroud: the Man, the Monster

I really want to see what the French National team does with Olivier Giroud. They play Brazil on March 26th and Denmark on the 30th and it’ll be hard for them to keep the on-fire Frenchie out of their team, given his insatiable goal scoring. He’s scored four in his last three games, has a better minutes-between-goals ratio than anyone else in the league, and he can almost guarantee a goal on a daily basis.

While Karim Benzema is obviously no slouch, Giroud is going to find the pitch and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him starting. But even if he doesn’t, he could easily find the net as an impact sub.
