French striker Olivier Giroud will miss next week's global football friendly against current world champion Germany due to a muscle injury to the right adductor, French Football Federation (FFF) announced on Sunday. I am happy at Arsenal and I am fine with the decision to stay because I want to.

Giroud was on the verge of moving to Everton during the summer, before the 31-year-old made a decision to remain at the Emirates and fight for his place. He is chosen for Europa League and Carabao Cup matches and retains the faith of France manager Didier Deschamps, who prefers Giroud ahead of Lacazette.

Giroud's playing time in North London has since been restricted, but the striker has kept his place in the France team - he scored his 15th goal in his last 22 global ties in their 2-0 win over France on Friday.

Giroud added: "I'm sure he (Wenger) was watching nearly all the games especially because Aaron was playing too".

The France worldwide has stated that he is happy at Arsenal despite not being guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.

"Arsene's always supporting me and there is a lot of trust in each other", Giroud added.

This petition comes at a time when NIA has claimed that they have come across as least 90 cases of forced conversions in Kerala. Sheffin has now petitioned in the Supreme Court, and Hadiya has been ordered to be presented before the court on November 27.

Giroud's goal against Wales also brought him to within a goal of his hero Jean-Pierre Papin in fifth place on France's all-time list on 29.

"We have a better understanding on the pitch now especially with the young players so we are very delighted".

Scoring goals is kind of important in football, so has Giroud's latest France milestone just proved that Wenger needs to give him more chances to do it for Arsenal?

"I'm very grateful. I'm very proud and I always try to bring something to the national team".

"Usually, I play a bit less with Arsenal but I always try to keep my efficiency high".
