Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud was the protagonist of the match against BATE Borisov. His header gave to Chelsea the passage to the next stage of the Europa League.
The Frenchman, who spoke at the end of the game, admitted the best thing to get from the clash is the result.
Giroud sais: “The best aspect is the result, I think. We didn’t play very well. I didn’t like the first half. We moved it too slowly. We could have been more efficient”
“We defended very well and they defended cohesively so it was difficult to find solutions at times and stop them on the break.”
He also spoke about his goal, the first one of the season: “I was hoping to score soon because I came back late from the World Cup and I was lacking maybe a bit of efficiency and luck but you always need to keep working hard and keep the faith and that’s what happened tonight”
