After the World Cup squads were announced, from the European group, it was only France, Germany, and England who had the most chances of lifting the trophy on the 18th of December. With their main striker getting ruled out from the squad, it’s now Olivier Giroud’s responsibility to see for the position.

Antoine Griezmann with the looks of his form is in huge doubt to be able to fulfill the role that the Real Madrid striker has left with, the man who had the most goals in Europe after the scoring machine Robert Lewandowski. The Real Madrid talisman was a real threat, and now the threat has reversed to France after his exit.
