France will head to Cologne for Tuesday's exhibition match against world champions, Germany.

"I am not questioning myself about my future", Giroud said.

"I always try to give everything for my country and I'm very proud to play for France".

Giroud picked up a thigh injury during his 73-minute long run-out in the 2-0 win against Wales on Friday [10 November] and has returned to his club for further treatment after scans revealed the blow, according to the French Football Federation. I don't want to stop there.

Wenger has declined to start Giroud in a single Premier League game for Arsenal this campaign, preferring Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.

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

"I am thinking that the story between the club and myself was not over and not finished".

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. That's more important for me. Usually I play a bit less with Arsenal but I always try to keep my efficiency high. I keep believing in my quality and I keep the faith.

"You're always the first person people point to if the team don't score, but the thing is that I score and I'm doing well with the team".

However, Coleman insists it was always the plan for Ramsey to play in just one of the games during the worldwide break.

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