France striker Olivier Giroud has revealed that his compatriot N’Golo Kante was shy to hold the World Cup trophy after France clinched it.
Both players who feature for Chelsea said this on the club’s Facebook page while discussing their World Cup outing.
The Les Bleue defeated Croatia 4-2 to win the cup with Giroud not recording a shot even though he was the point man for the Europeans.
“Obviously, we knew that Hugo (captain Lloris) would be the first one to touch it,” Giroud was quoted on Daily Mail as saying when asked about the trophy.
“I have to say I have been clever because I took the good position to touch it.”
“I was waiting my turn,’ Kante said and Giroud interrupted.
“He is so shy so he didn’t want to say ‘give it to me’. So he had to wait,” Giroud said
“Sometimes people came in front of him.
“At the end of the day someone took it and gave it to him.”
