Some Arsenal supporters miss Olivier Giroud after watching his France performance

Many Arsenal fans were left missing the contribution of Olivier Giroud at the Emirates Stadium after watching him in action for France at the World Cup on Saturday afternoon.

The 31-year-old Chelsea striker started their last 16 match against Argentina and while he didn’t find the back of the net, his assist for Kylian Mbappe helped put the game beyond doubt for the French in an eventual 4-3 victory.

Giroud has been an effective presence for his country throughout the tournament, becoming a key outlet for their attacking play and helping more dynamic players impact the game around him.

He was sold to Chelsea in January after failing to hold down at regular place at the Gunners, netting five times in half a season for the Blues.

Now some fans regret that decision, feeling that he’ll always be an Arsenal player in their minds after five-and-a-half seasons at the club.

These Arsenal supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts after his Saturday performance…
