The thriving bromance between former Arsenal and Chelsea player Olivier Giroud and his France teammate Kylian Mbappe seems to be waxing strong, as Olivier commended Kylian in a recent interview. He said: “Kylian is basically one of the best players I’ve played with,” Giroud said in a press conference. “He is amazing and is still young, which is scary as he can still improve.”
“He is very efficient, and from the beginning of the competition, he’s been crucial for us—very decisive and very competitive.” “He’s obviously the best striker I’ve played with in all of the teams I’ve played in.”
This is coming after Kylian helped the 36-year-old with defense splitting, which resulted in a goal against Poland in the last 16. Further describing the “infectious enthusiasm” the two France forwards have Giroud stated, “Football is so spontaneous that we can make movements like that.” That goal came from that combination. “Our relationship has always been good, and this infectious enthusiasm is something we want to share with the young players and make our fans happy.”
when asked about France’s World Cup quarterfinal match with England. Giroud simply stated, “It’s a special game for us.” They have so many young players in this generation that I think they have quality but also quantity in the squad. They have different options, and it will be a nice game to watch. I hope it’s going to go well for us.
Fans can expect to see Giroud alongside Mbappe in the French attack when the Les Bleus face Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in the last-eight clash on Saturday.
