first_imgFortunately for France, as hosts of the 2016 UEFA European Championship, they have been exempt from the stress of qualifying for the tournament, but, even so, that doesn’t mean that Didier Deschamps’ men aren’t eager to impress in the build up. And perhaps none more so than Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.It has been a challenging few months for Giroud who has not only fallen significantly out of favour at the Emirates Stadium this season, becoming second choice to Theo Walcott, but also suffered the embarrassment of being booed by the French fans during a clash with Serbia in September. However, he looked to relish playing time for his country last week and his confidence should have received a much needed boost.He scored a brace in France’s final friendly of the international break to seal victory over Denmark on Sunday night, and will hope that manager Arsene Wenger was watching closely. Have a watch of his two goals above and check out the assist from Anthony Martial for his first.Should Arsene Wenger pick Olivier Giroud more often at Arsenal or is Theo Walcott really the superior option?
