Historic departure for the French team, Mbappé will eclipse him

Published on May 24, 2024 at 1:00 p.m.

Hungry for sport, he grew up to the sound of Formula 1 engines and the exploits of Ronaldinho. Today, with a Master’s degree in sports journalism, he no longer misses an F1 Grand Prix or a PSG match, his two passions and specialties.

While he will leave Europe to join MLS next season, Olivier Giroud will also retire internationally with the Euro for which he was called up by Didier Deschamps. He will therefore still have a few matches to improve his goal total for the Blues. But very quickly, Kylian Mbappé should beat his record to become top scorer in the history of the France team.

Didier Deschamps revealed his list for the Euro which will be played this summer in Germany. Without surprise, Olivier Giroud is one of the 25 players selected by the coach of the France team. Author of a very successful new season with theAC Milanthe former scorer ofArsenal could also be a starter at the forefront of the Blues attack, before leaving Europe to join Hugo Lloris in Los Angeles in MLS. This will also be the last international competition of the 2018 world champion who announced it in the columns of THE TEAM.

Giroud announces his international retirement after the Euro

It’s true, but you also have to know not to overdo the season. You have to find the right balance. Afterwards, you should never say “Fountain, I won’t drink your water”, but you have to be realistic. As I said, I also feel physical and mental fatigue. Raphaël Varane said it after the World Cup, and he is right. I always said I was going to stop when my body asked me to. I think I have two more good years. But for the French team, in my opinion, it will be over », Reveals Olivier Giroud, who therefore confirms his international retirement at the end of the Euro.

Mbappé will soon become top scorer for the Blues

Therefore, Olivier Giroud will have one last opportunity to improve his goal total by Blues. Top scorer in the history of the French team with 57 goals in 131 caps, the former striker of MHSC will therefore try to raise his record a little higher. But in all cases, it will simply be a matter of postponing the inevitable deadline. Kylian Mbappé will break the recordOlivier Giroud. The only question is: when? With 46 goals in 77 caps, the future ex-striker of PSG first Thierry Henry in the viewfinder (51 goals) before heading towards his current teammate in the Blues. Antoine Griezmann (44 goals) follows in fourth position ahead Michael Platini (41 goals). In other words, this ranking risks being turned upside down during the Euro.
