The inclusion of Olivier Giroud may have thrown you off a little and rightly so. The French striker has certainly been dipping his toes into the faith side of things recently and is asking questions about what is means to be a Christian. Whether or not he is quite there yet, is between Olivier and God, but there has been some promising signs that Giroud is understanding more about who God is and what Jesus has done for him, for you and for me.

When Arsenal won the F.A. Cup at the end of the 2016/2017 season, the French striker was pictured, lifting off his Gunners jersey to reveal a shirt with the words, “I am the way the truth and the life – Jesus”

The French striker will be looking to push Les Bleus to the next level after they lost out in the final of Euro 2016 to Portugal just 2 years back. Can Giroud help France go one step further and lift the World Cup once again?
