But Giroud immediately proved that he still deserves to be in the uniform of a top European club, let alone just playing in Serie A. Giroud who has a wealth of experience in the Premier League definitely scored twice as the Rossoneri against Cagliari in a 4-1 win.

His first goal was a directional kick through Brahim Diaz’s sweet pass. The second came via a confident finish from the penalty spot.
