The assist, the finish
Olivier Giroud was reportedly booed by France supporters before their friendly against Cameroon. Climbing onto the team bus, fans shouted that Karim Benzema should be going to Euro 2016, not him.
The Arsenal forward has gone some way towards making those dissenters eat their words with a goal in that game thanks to a simple amazing assist from Paul Pogba. The midfielder toyed with an opponent just inside the opposition half before launching a sensational pass that Giroud met first time with a clinical volley.
One can imagine the havoc Pogba may wreak at the European Championships!
The summer of Pogba
There’s a growing feeling that this could be Paul Pogba’s summer. He’s going to be a key player for France in their bid for glory on home soil. We wouldn’t bet against him cutting down opponents, tearing up trees.
It also looks like it could be the transfer window when Juventus decide to sell the 23-year-old. Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on bringing Pogba back to Old Trafford. Tying up a deal before the Euros would be smart.
