Olivier Giroud, Matt Miazga Bloodied In Pre-World Cup Friendly

As if the French didn’t have enough to worry about—seeing their national team down after one half to the U.S. in its last tune-up before the World Cup—now superstar Olivier Giroud has left the match alongside Matt Miazga after the two clashed heads on a corner kick.

France, which actually has a World Cup to look forward to, can perhaps take solace in the fact Giroud was somewhat less bloody than Miazga, who emerged from the incident looking like he’d just faced Brock Lesnar for the WWE title. Both, we imagine but cannot assume because this is international soccer, after all, will be checked for concussions.
