Olivier Giroud was the hero of Milan in the very important 0-1 victory on the trip to Genoa.
The French striker was included from the reserve bench, but did not score or assist, he became a hero with expectations as a goalkeeper.
Mike Maignan was shown a red card, while coach Stefano Pioli was no longer eligible for substitutions and Olivier Giroud donned his compatriot’s shirt while standing in goal.
The French veteran made some decisive interventions securing the three points for Milan and he has already gone viral on social networks.
The official website of the Representative of France also reacted with a photo that went viral.
“We have to adjust the list”, wrote the official website of France as it published Giroud in the goalkeeper’s jersey.
Giroud in this photo is next to three other goalkeepers of France such as Alphonse Areola, Mike Maignan and Brice Samba.
That was enough for this photo to receive thousands of shares and likes on social networks.
