Quoted by the London Evening Standard, France star Antoine Griezmann has warned fans about booing Olivier Giroud at Euro 2016.

The Arsenal striker is a part of the France squad looking to secure victory on home turf this summer.

He is set to lead the line for Les Bleus in the absence of Real Madrid star Karim Benzema, who has been left out of the squad indefinitely.

It is not a situation that the French fans are happy about though, with a recent friendly seeing them boo the Gunners forward.

Griezmann has warned them against doing that though as it not only hurts Giroud, but the rest of the team too.

“We know that people are asking a lot of us,” the London Evening Standard quotes him saying.

“Those who whistled Olivier Giroud weren't hurting only him but also us as well. We did everything so that he might score, so that he feels confident with us and he has responded on the pitch.”

It will certainly be interesting to see how Giroud fares at Euro 2016 this summer with the pressure firmly on his and France’s shoulders.

The striker is arguably fighting to prove himself both on the international set up and in the Arsenal squad as well.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for a top striker this summer, and Giroud may need a strong tournament to ensure he is not on the bench next year.
