“As a striker, what you got used to on a daily basis, it is to be applauded when you score goals. When the opposite happens, it’s difficult. Everybody gets criticised at one point,” he said.

“That’s not the first and surely not the last time it happens. I have the mental strength to bounce back. Now I am going to focus on working. I am everything but worried about that. I will bounce back.”

“Tonight I wasn’t very efficient. It is like it is. I cannot focus too much on it. I have to think about the victory of the team and the good form we are currently experiencing,” he said.

“We did well against Portugal and it is great to confirm with a second victory for the confidence. Everything was not perfect but we play well especially during the first half.

“I am going first, to enjoy our victory and then obviously I will have to correct a few things.”

Giroud’s form for club side Arsenal isn’t much better, the 28-year-old having netted just once in his last 11 Premier League appearances.
