has praised Chelsea’s striker after his performance in Chelsea’s victory over Sevilla in the Champions League.

Oliver Giroud

hadn’t been on the starting squad for the Blues in any other competitions in both Premier League and Champions League before the game against the Spanish club and his national team manager is happy to see him seize his chance.

"It's always important for attackers to score goals, whatever the match," he said at a press conference after Les Bleus were paired with Belgium in the Nations League semi-finals.

"He had the immense pleasure of being able to start a match. It does not happen to him often, even if by returning he scores important goals. Scoring a quadruple in the Champions League doesn't happen every day. Besides, they are different goals.

"Olivier is someone with a big mind, a big character. He is forced to fight against everyone, to excess at times. It was an important game as they played first place against Sevilla. Faced with such an opponent, it further enhances his performance. Good for him and for his club."
