Arsenal star Olivier Giroud has vowed to be back in and amongst the goals after scoring in France’s 3-2 win over the Netherlands, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.
Giroud has only started one of the Gunners’ last four league games, losing his place to Danny Welbeck after a poor run of form.
However, the 29-year-old found his scoring touch against Holland during the weekend, bagging his country’s second in a 3-2 victory.
The international strike was only his third goal in his last 15 matches, with his previous two a brace against Hull City in an FA Cup replay.
And the former Montepellier attacker isn’t surprised he has been dropped for Welbeck, promising to increase his tally in order to compete for the chance to start up front for the title-chasing Gunners.
“When the coach calls on me, I try to be efficient, it’s good for the confidence,” he said.
“The coach thinks this is not enough and it cost me my place, but I already knew that and I worked, it does not make me worry, it will come.”
Arsene Wenger’s men are trailing league leaders Leicester City by a massive 11 points, but they do have a game in hand on the Foxes.
Arsenal will face Watford, the team that knocked them out of the FA Cup, in their next league clash at the Emirates this weekend.
