Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Newcastle United, Chelsea duo Mateo Kovacic and Olivier Giroud have sent a strong message to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard after their impressive displays in the Nations League on Tuesday.
Giroud scored twice as France beat Sweden 4-2 on Tuesday night in a Nations League game. Benjamin Pavard and Kingsley Coman were the other goalscorers for France.
Matteo Kovavic also scored twice but still found himself on the losing side against Portugal.
His Croatia team were reduced to 10 men early in the second half and conceded the last goal in a 3-2 loss in the 90th minute.
