Qatar 2022 What Giroud told me when I begged him to stop marking me – Amrabat. Sofyan Amrabat, a midfielder for Morocco, has stated that he begged Olivier Giroud of France to stop marking him during their semi-final loss to Les Bleus on Wednesday.
Didier Deschamps’ team is the only second nation to have made the final back-to-back and the first in the previous 60 years after the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup second semi-final match concluded in a 2-0 victory for the tournament winners.
Theo Hernandez and substitute Randal Kolo Muani each scored a goal in either half to help France secure a spot in Sunday’s championship game.
Amrabat was a little taken aback by France’s strategy in the game, which even assigned Giroud to man-mark the Fiorentina midfielder.
“They ignored our center backs. Olivier Giroud, their striker, was pursuing me all over the middle! He informed NOS.
I told him to stop, but he responded that he was required to stick with me during the entire game.
