The AC Milan striker returns to the national team and finds goal number 47 with Bleus: he is -4 behind Henry. In Marseille it ends 2-1 with a goal from Tchouameni in full recovery, for the Africans to score Pepé
It’s a French-style Milan, for a couple of seasons now. But there is also a Milanese France. An unprecedented event for the Blues: in Marseille, in the friendly against the Ivory Coast, the French scored an all Rossoneri goal. Theo Hernandez with an assist (house specialty, a perfect cross from the left side of the area) and Olivier Giroud with the winning header, another trademark. The AC Milan striker was the unfortunate protagonist in the action of the momentary 1-0 Ivorian, vainly asking for a hand ball in midfield: no whistle, ball overturned on the opposite front for Pepé and diagonal from the right that surprises LLoris. The challenge was decided in full recovery, with a goal by Tchouameni in the 93rd minute, still headed, from a corner by Guendouzi.
The one scored at the Velodrome is the 47th goal for Giroud in the national team: four centers further ahead is Thierry Henry, currently first in the Blues’ all-time scorer list at 51. Should he be called up for the World Cup in Qatar, Giroud would have the concrete possibility of overcoming the Henry monument, who shares a past at Arsenal with him. In the Marseille match, Maignan remained on the bench and Rabiot entered in the 89th minute. On the other hand, Kessie played the entire match.
