Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has insisted France won’t make excuses for their 1-1 draw at home to Ukraine in the opening game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking to La Chaine L’Équipe, Giroud said: “In the first half, we dominated our opponent, we had a big ball possession, we had chances but we didn’t score the second goal.

“In the second half, we continued to attack and were surprised by a half-chance, it was a bit the goal that hurt us.

“They played very close together, it became more difficult.

“I am always expectant with myself, I wanted to help the team to win this match.

“We are not going to make excuses, we were a bit taken aback by a goal like that, we were wondering to ourselves what was happening to us.

“It is frustrating but it is a team who wanted it. We also need to know to recognise that they had a very good match.”
