Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud proud of influence on France victories

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud was delighted with his performance in France's 1-0 win over Peru.

Giroud has had a big influence on both of France's World Cup wins so far.

He said: "I'm happy. I knew I was waiting on this match. It's important to answer this when the coach has confidence in you and puts you on the ground.

"I tried to bring my stone to the building. I'm happy with what I realized.

"And the group also after the first mixed game."
