That was despite him being just seconds away from being subbed off by boss Didier Deschamps.
Now the 36-year-old veteran and his team-mates are preparing for tonight’s semi-final date with Morocco.
As we revealed previously, the 2018 World Cup winner continues to defy his years through a strict diet plan and tough fitness routine.
And he eats plenty of fruit, vegetables, chicken and fish to maintain his incredible physique, while working overtime in the gym.
Now, as well as another potential World Cup winners medal, the forward’s displays are set to earn him an extension with his club with his current one due to expire in June.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted an update on the situation which read: “Meeting scheduled between Olivier Giroud’s agents and AC Milan after the World Cup to complete the agreement on new contract.
“New deal almost ready and set to be signed soon, all parties have the same intention: continue together.”
Giroud left Chelsea for the San Siro in the summer of 2021 after nine years in the Premier League.

During that period he lifted the FA Cup four times, three at Arsenal, plus the Champions League and Europa League.
He has continued that success with AC Milan as he helped them to the Serie A title in his first term there.
So far this season he has fired in nine goals for Stefano Pioli’s team.
