Euro2016: France eager to exact revenge on Germany - Arsenal striker Giroud

Olivier Giroud is hoping France can get one back on Germany at Euro2016.

Les Bleus were beaten 1-0 by Die Mannschaft in the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup and are desperate to right that wrong in the semi-final of the Euros.

Giroud scored a brace as France beat Iceland 5-2 in the quarter-final on Sunday night and the Arsenal striker is now gunning for the Germans in Marseille on Thursday as they look to exact revenge for that narrow loss in Rio two years ago.

"It will be a completely different match, they're the world champions and often in the last four of major tournaments," said Giroud.

"It will be a great match, we have a lot of desire to get our own back for the World Cup.

"I'm very proud of what this France side is achieving and I hope we'll come out once again with the right result."
