France turn to Olivier Giroud in bid to up their game against Peru

France coach Didier Deschamps will include Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi in his starting XI to face Peru on Thursday in Yekaterinburg. Giroud had a positive impact coming off the bench in France’s 2-1 win over Australia in their Group C opener and physicality will also be useful up front against the Peruvians.
Matuidi’s work rate and intensity were also missing in the first game and his activity will be needed against a strong Peru midfield as well.
