France secured a 2-1 victory over Moldova on Thursday night to maintain their spot at the top of Group H in the qualifying stages for Euro 2020, but with yet another goal on the international stage, these Chelsea fans have been singling out this player for praise following a tweet from the club.

Chelsea’s striking options are vast in the Frank Lampard era, with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi competing for a starting berth at the spearhead of the Blues’ attack. However, a match-winning goal from Olivier Giroud is a timely reminder to his manager that the 33-year-old is still capable of delivering at the highest level.
The Frenchman has steadily risen to third on France’s all-time scorers’ list, behind only Michel Platini and Thierry Henry, and these supporters were quick to praise his contribution with many calling for the former Arsenal man to be afforded more opportunities under Lampard.
Here are some of the best reactions following a tweet from the club praising Giroud’s goalscoring performance.
He was everywhere today
