France National Team’s Luck Myth about World Champion

By db-admin –  How can a team come to the final round of World Cup, led by a striker who is unable to score a goal? Ask the France national team.

Yes, France got the ticket to the final round of 2018 World Cup through their main striker; Olivier Giroud hasn’t scored any goal. The Chelsea striker just recorded one shot on target, during the semifinal round versus Belgia.

In total, during the tournament, Giroud performed 465 minutes with 14 times attack, one on target, and zero goal. Compare it with Harry Kane, England striker who scored five in his five on target kicks.

What makes it more interesting is the poor record could be a good sign for France. Yes, the goalless striker can be a good luck for France, just like what happened 20 years ago.

France became the world Champion during 2018 World Cup after defeating Brasil 3-0. At that time, striker Stephane Guivarc’h, one productive player in the domestic competition, supported France squad. But, similar to Giroud, Guivarch became goalless during the World Cup.
