The Arsenal hitman scored twice against the Scots in a friendly.
Arsenal's Olivier Giroud maintained his excellent recent form by netting twice for France in Saturday night's 3-0 win over Scotland.
Les Bleus will go into Euro 2016 on home soil on the back of a morale-boosting win over the Scots, in which the Gunners hitman was at the double.
The much-maligned Giroud, who finished off the Premier League season with a hat-trick against Aston Villa last month, opened the scoring after eight minutes with a wonderful near-post flick.
The 29-year-old marksman then doubled the lead on 35 minutes, before his Arsenal team-mate Laurent Koscielny got in on the act with a third four minutes later.
Giroud struggled majorly in the second half of Arsenal's season, netting just six times in between January and May - and four of those came in the North Londoners' final two Premier League games - but supporters seemed please to see him impress on the international stage
Giroud is banging goals I dunno if that's a good or bad thing... #AFC— Jack Parr (@JackParr_) June 5, 2016

You can doubt Giroud all you want for #AFC, but for France, he’s on fire. Puts them 1-0 against Scotland with a backheel flick finish.— Tom Coast (@thcoast) June 4, 2016
Quality finish from Giroud to put France 1-0 up against Scotland, he's in great form for them leading up to the Euro's #AFC— Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) June 4, 2016
Giroud's two-goal heroics come roughly 24 hours after intense speculation suggesting that Arsenal have activated Jamie Vardy's £20 million release clause - the Leicester City striker who netted 24 Premier League goals this past season, eight more than the Frenchman.
But Giroud seems to have reacted positively to the potential threat of being displaced as Arsenal's first-choice striker, and the whole of France will be hoping he continues to show Arsene Wenger what he's capable of as les Bleus chase a first major title since winning Euro 2000.
