Giroud will start for France against Georgia, as planned

Settle down. Take deep breaths.

Clive Mason

According to reports very briefly, Olivier Giroud was not going to start as planned for France today as they face Georgia in a World Cup qualifier. To the tweets!

I was going to tell you to chill out and not riot yet, because it was probably just a little thing and he'd be fine. Then this happened.

Evidently he and Patrice Evra collided in warmups, but he was assessed by trainers and is fine. Now our ire turns to Didier Deschamps, because if his fine-ness is not absolute and Giroud plays, I will be miffed.

Don't ruin my weekend, Didier. Don't you do it.
