France kick off their Euro 2020 campaign with a game against Germany on Tuesday, June 15.

The Les Bleus are among the favourites to win the competition, especially after their victory in the World Cup.

Meanwhile, reports claim that there is unrest in the camp, following a statement made by Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

“You say that I was quiet, but it’s because sometimes I ask for the ball and it doesn’t reach me,” Giroud said after France 3-0 win over Bulgaria earlier in the week.

“Then, I try to make as many calls as possible to my teammates and try to provide solutions in the box.”

According to L’Equipe, PSG and France striker Kylian Mbappe felt singled out by Giroud’s comments, especially as the Chelsea striker spoke highly of the assists provided by Benjamin Pavard and Wissam Ben Yedder.

“With two good assists from Ben Yedder and Pavard, I was able to finish the game well, but we could have scored more goals if we had been more efficient,” Giroud added.

According to reports, Giroud apologised to Mbappe after lunch at France’s training base, but reports in France claim that the speedy young forward was not satisfied with the apology.
