First served by Kai Havertz, Giroud defeated Diego Carlos to open the scoring with his left foot (8th, 0-1). The following ? A festival of Chelsea’s number 18 in the second period: the striker offered himself a double with a ball stung over Tomáš Vaclík (54th, 0-2), then a hat-trick on a header under the bar following a center of Ngolo Kanté (74th, 0-3). Victim of a foul in the area, the French striker even did justice to himself from the penalty spot (83rd, 0-4). Thanks to this convincing success, Chelsea are now certain to finish first in the pool.
At the start of this poster, the data was simple: the winner of this match between Sevilla FC and Chelsea was assured of finishing at the top of this group E. If the two teams had already qualified, it did not. did not prevent Frank Lampard from aligning a very competitive starting XI where Havertz served as a support striker for Giroud. Decisive passer on the first goal, the German international shone in this part like his two starting friends on the wings, Chrstian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Giroud did everything
In his right lane, the England international made Karim Rekik dizzy. The former Marseillais could not avoid the opening of the English score and the total control of the visitors in Andalusian lands. In fact, London goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was never worried in the game, except for a Sevillian header at the very last minute. In the meantime, Giroud has made the meeting his thing. In every good shot, including the provocation of a penalty to turn Chelsea’s victory into a life-size slap, the center-forward scored four goals: two with left foot, one with right foot and one with a header .
This XXL performance made Lampard all smiles on the edge of the sideline while Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham, his two main rivals at the central striker position, observed that the Frenchman was very far from having given up a number spot. one in the spirit of Lampard. A figure to evoke the extraordinary performance of Giroud: throughout his professional career, the striker had not scored a quadruple since September 18, 2009 during a National match in the jersey of FC Tours against Arles-Avignon. An eternity, like the longevity at the highest level of the 2018 world champion.
