Olivier Giroud defied his critics by scoring two goals against Iceland, which pushes the Arsenal man into the bracket of striker who is not world class, but also not shit.
France impressed with a blistering first half display which left a number a neutral fans’ decision to go out and buy the Iceland jersey seem like a complete waste of money.
