Giroud against Kjaer in France vs. Denmark – first Milan duel at the World Cup

By Isak Möller -

Two AC Milan players will take on each other at the World Cup later today, namely Olivier Giroud and Simon Kjaer. France will face Denmark and both of the Rossoneri men are expected to play from the first minute. 

It will be the first Milan duel of the World Cup and it should be a very interesting one. Not just because they are two very good players, but especially since they will be tasked to make life difficult for one another.

Giroud has started the tournament in tremendous fashion with two goals in the first game, while Kjaer played 65 minutes in Denmark’s 0-0 draw against Tunisia. It’s an important game for both sides and the in-match battles will be interesting to watch.

Denmark’s manager admitted during the press conference that he will make the most of Kjaer’s knowledge when it comes to Giroud. He stated that the striker has seemingly gotten even better with age (read here), which Milan fans can attest to.
