He plays as a forward for Premier League club Chelsea and the France national team. Highly regarded for his work-rate, strength, shot power and consistent goal-scoring ability, he is often named as one of the most underrated strikers in world football.
Giroud was born in Chambéry, France in the Rhône-Alpes region, and was raised in the nearby village of Froges, close to Grenoble. Giroud is of Italian descent through both of his grandmothers. Giroud began his football career playing for his hometown club, Olympique Club de Froges. He spent six years training at the club before joining professional club Grenoble at the age of 13.
Giroud spent five years developing in Grenoble’s youth academy before signing his first professional contract at the age of 21.
Giroud was promoted to the senior team permanently for the 2006–07 season by new manager Payton Pouliquen and Nicola Malgeri and was assigned the number 22 shirt. After appearing as a substitute in the team’s first league match of the campaign, he made his first professional start in a 2–1 defeat away to Niort playing the entire match.
After playing for teams like Tours, Montpellier, Giroud signed for Premier league club Arsenals in 2012 for a fee believed to be around £9.6 million.
He made his debut on 18 August as a substitute for fellow debutant Lukas Podolski in a goalless home draw against Sunderland in the Premier League.
After five seasons with Arsenal, Giroud signed an 18-month contract with Chelsea for an undisclosed fee in 2018.
On 15 February 2021, Giroud became the 17th player in Premier League history to make 100 substitute appearances when he replaced an injured Tammy Abraham in the first half of Chelsea’s match against Newcastle; Giroud would go on to open the scoring in an eventual 2–0 win. On 23 February, he scored the only goal in a 1–0 win over Atlético Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.
Giroud made his full international debut for France in 2011. He has since become the nation’s second-highest goalscorer with 44 goals in 107 caps, and was part of the teams which reached the quarter-finals at UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the final of UEFA Euro 2016 in which he received the Bronze Boot as joint second-highest goalscorer, and won the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
