Didier Deschamps said Olivier Giroud "should be ready" for France’s Group C opener on June 16 after he was forced off because of injury on Saturday evening.
The Chelsea forward was involved in a sickening clash of heads with club team-mate Matt Miazga which left Giroud requiring stitches to close a six-centimetre wound. Medics spent five minutes attending to the 31-year-old before he was replaced by Ousmane Dembele as a precaution. But, as France prepared for their flight to Russia, Deschamps was quick to play down concerns of a serious injury: "Olivier Giroud has a beautiful cut, but he will be able to face Australia," he said. The French manager also confirmed that Paul Pogba is "very likely" to be in the starting XI despite his insipid performances of late. The Manchester United midfielder was jeered throughout the 3-1 friendly win over Italy last week and failed to inspire his side in the lacklustre 1-1 draw against USA. Jun 10 - 1:44 PM
