At the age of 36, Olivier Giroud is still leading the line for club and country, and continues to prove himself as one of the best strikers in Europe.
Despite overtaking Thierry Henry to be his country's leading goalscorer of all time with 53, Giroud is often under-appreciated when compared to players such as Michel Platini, Kylian Mbappe, Zinedine Zidane, and of course Henry himself.
With Karim Benzema getting injured on the eve of the tournament, Giroud has picked up the baton to help guide his side to the World Cup final. He can even still be backed at 10/1 to be Top Goalscorer in Qatar.
Graham Hunter looks at what motivates the former Arsenal and Chelsea man, and explains why the striker continues to be a threat in front of goal.
