France head coach Didier Dechamps has revealed that Olivier Giroud suffered an ankle sprain, while it has emerged that the medical staff are not too worried.
Giroud looked in some pain when he limped off in the 23rd minute of France’s game against Ireland tonight, having gone to the floor while aiming to latch onto a feed inside the box.
Deschamps spoke to TF1 at half-time and was asked about Giroud: “He had a small problem with his ankle, then on a shot he turned it. He was in too much pain to continue unfortunately.”
According to what was reported by the broadcaster TF1 (via MilanNews), the France medical staff are not particularly worried by the ankle injury suffered by Giroud. He was spotted on the bench with ice on his ankle.
