There was a lot of concern last night after Olivier Giroud came off in the first half of France’s win against Ireland with an ankle injury, and updates continue to follow.
In the 26th minute of the first half, Giroud left the field with a left ankle issue, which instantly provoked fears that he might be out for a while and would miss the derby. The player tried to reassure fans after the game, but it was obvious he was in pain.
According to the latest from MilanNews, there is a cautious optimism about Giroud’s condition. The instrumental tests have not yet been carried out, but the initial sensations of the medical staff of the French national team and of the player himself are being confirmed.
Of course the results of the scan will be definitive in determining the extent of any damage, but the positive signs are good news in view of the derby in eight days.
