MN: Giroud needed just one chance to introduce himself – Milan have their bomber

By Isak Möller -

Olivier Giroud got off to a great start with the Milan jersey as he scored on his debut this evening, just a few minutes after coming on. Indeed, he showed exactly why the Rossoneri were eager to bring him in. 

As highlighted by MilanNews, it was a trademark Giroud goal, beating the defenders on Samu Castillejo’s free-kick to head home the equaliser. And it came in an important moment, as Nice had taken the lead a few minutes before.

Giroud’s goal allowed Milan to settle down a bit and take control of what was a very tough game, in front of almost 25K fans that made themselves heard. The performance, in truth, wasn’t great by the Rossoneri but at least they got a draw.

With a real striker up front, they didn’t need loads of chances to find the back of the net. In fact, Giroud needed just one and got the job done with his first touch. The Rossoneri have found their bomber, who hopefully can break the No.9 spell.

    That’s a sign of what is to come. The curse on the No.9 jersey is broken. Giroud double figure this season

    Ok then. Castillejo as a main right winger & Giroud as a main striker. Looks like we are sorted for the upcoming season.

      Hopefully. But it seems that with Milan, we change everything from one game to the next.

    Having Ibra and Giroud as goal scorer would be amasing. But Milan need to buy high quality playmaker to support him. Brahim is not enough . Having high quality playmaker and a better right winger must be their main priorities before end of summer transfer.

    I saw the whole game my picks for good performers is: rebic,maldini, tonali was getting better at the end, krunic did good,romagnoli and tomori look match ready,ballo Toure gave good first impression, Calabria was solid, Giroud breaking the curse. Diaz was weak, pobega needs time for his new role, theo gave atal a lot of space to run. Also if possible sign gouiri that guy is very impressive seriously he can be the cam. His passes his driving in the box is just great. Missed hauge in first half and double pivot was missing.

      Also mike maignan saved brilliant saves especially the freekick by gouiri was saved nicely he is worthy replacement for donnarumma
