Olivier Giroud is suffering lack of confidence due to limited playing time at Arsenal, according to France manager Didier Deschamps.
The former Marseille manager reckons that the gunners forward who currently plays second fiddle to Theo Walcott at the Emirates has struggled to perform for country and was booed the last time he featured in an international game.
However, Deschamps is confident that the 29-year-old rediscover his best from that’s why he keeps inviting him.
“He’s in a tough position,” London 24 quotes Deschamps as saying.
“It’s a difficult period for him. His game time is less important, his confidence has gone down and he could have played better for us the last time he featured.
“It’s all part of one season. He’s here because I have faith in him. He hasn’t lost his qualities overnight.”
France will play Armenia on Thursday before facing Denmark three days later.
