France Squad for Euro 2016: Manchester United striker selected, Giroud in, Ben Arfa misses out

France national team manager Didier Deschamps has selected his 23-man squad for Euro 2016 on Thursday. While most of his selections are justified, the inclusion of the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud ahead of Nice forward Hatem Ben Arfa has raised eyebrows.

In the absence of Karim Benzema, who will miss the tournament after receiving a ban for his involvement in an alleged blackmail scandal from the French federation last month, Deschamps has included as many six forwards to his squad but named the in-form forward Ben Arfa as a reserve.

Arsenal will receive big boost when Santi Cazorla returns from injury

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil are Arsenal's big guns (I'd also probably add Petr Cech as well), there is no denying that. The dynamic offensive duo are major talents and have been brilliant during the current campaign. Alexis has netted 10 total goals on the season, despite missing a chunk of games due to a knee injury and Özil is within shouting distance of breaking former Gunner Thierry Henry's Premier League season assist record.

Arsenal are relying too heavily on Olivier Giroud

It is fairly safe to say that Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud is not exactly the most well-liked player in the Barclays Premier League. Some of the Frenchman's criticism is justified (he does miss his fair chances in front of goal), some is not (Giroud has been labeled a "donkey" by many); however, when looking into the statistics, the striker certainly holds his own against other players in his position that cost three times the reported £9.

Much has been said and written about the game already but no one can deny the facts. Chelsea were well on top of Arsenal with Cesc Fabregas bossing the midfield BEFORE Per Mertersacker was sent off.

We desperately need another striker and we need him by January's end. He doesn't have to be a Higuain or a Cavani (though either would be dreamy), we just need someone to allow Giroud some time in the sun.

The injury to Welbeck is very bad news as he was signed with this very position in mind.

A bit of cat and mouse from both sides during the opening gambits, and perhaps the casual observer may have sensed a long evening ahead.
