Arsenal's Giroud Is France's Number One Striker - Deschamps

France have got a surplus of star strikers in their squad in the likes of Karim Benzema, Alexandre Lacazette plus Kylian Mbappe.
Nevertheless coach Didier Deschamps keeps seeing Arsenal's Olivier Giroud as his main man.
"He can play tomorrow, like the other ones," Deschamps said.

"Olivier has not had a lot of minutes on the pitch, also because he had an injury. Even if he was in the side at Arsenal, then the people were thinking that he was able to play, to begin the match.

"If you're on the bench and you don't come in because you're not 100 per cent, then only few people can be aware of it.

"But before the international break he played three games in a row. He knows that he's had a more difficult season.

"But he proved on Saturday that he's still an efficient striker. He scores goals with us, but he also gives to the players around him to change the attacking dynamic."
