Olivier Giroud booed by France fans

Published 6 Comments

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud endured a torrid evening in France's 2-1 victory over Serbia last night. 

As reported by the Mirror, the forward was the subject of boos from his own fans, before he was replaced by Real Madrid ace Karim Benzema after an hour. 

Last night's clash proved a tricky one for Giroud, who has struggled in the early stages of the season for both club and country.

In fact, on the domestic scene with Arsenal, the striker has managed to find the back of the net on just one occasion in the Premier League in this campaign. 

Ultimately, with Didier Deschamps' side set to play on home soil in next summer's European Championships, Giroud will be determined to prove his critics wrong, as he goes in search of a key role in the tournament.

Goals will arrive 

One thing's for sure, despite a disappointing start to the campaign, goals will no doubt flow for Giroud sooner rather than later. 

At the end of the day, over the course of the last couple of years, the Frenchman has enjoyed a fine period in north London, and will no doubt prove his credentials in the immediate future. 

With the Gunners set to take on Stoke City at the Emirates this weekend, Giroud will most definitely be hoping for a starring role under the guidance of Arsene Wenger. Perhaps, then, this weekend's fixture will prove the perfect tonic for the Frenchman.
