The Chelsea striker aspires to overcome the mark of the French legend and also points to the Euro Cup that will be played in 2021.
Without Karim Benzema as a competitor, Olivier Giroud became the starting center forward of the France national team. This allowed him to reap many goals and leave him near the mark of Michel Platini, something the Chelsea attacker wants to overcome.
In dialogue with Canal +, the Frenchman asserted: “I still thirst for trophies and beat records in the National Team. It would be good to spend a hundred games, and then try to beat Platini in second place of the highest historical scorers.”
The nine of Les Bleus has 97 appearances with France and scored 39 goals, just three from the former player. Outside of the individual, he reached the final of Euro 2016 and was champion of the 2018 World Cup, although he does not want it to end there.
“I had the opportunity to reach the final of the Euro Cup and win the World Cup. These are goals and next year’s Euro Cup is, of course, a goal,” Giroud said.
