Giroud scores as France cruise to UEFA Nations League win over Netherlands

by -

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud was the man who put France up again in their UEFA Nations League win against the Dutch in Paris last night.

The forward is now the third all-time goalscorer of the Bleus, having surpassed also Zinedine Zidane with 32 goals.

Also Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante played the whole game in Didier Deschamps’ team.

If Andreas Christensen was an unused sub in Denmark win over Wales, Ethan Ampadu was directly involved in the game. The 17-year-old, who played in midfield, also caused a penalty due to an alleged handball. A brace from Spurs’ starlet Christian Eriksen means that Denmark are leading the table, level on points with the Welsh.

Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger came off the bench at half-time (replacing Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng) as Germany came from behind to get a 2-1 victory against Peru.
