Premier League Star Taken Off The Pitch After Horrific Accident During Match (Photos) - 3 years ago
[b][b]Olivier Giroud left the pitch covered in blood after a horrific clash of heads with Chelsea team-mate Matt Miazga.[/b][/b] The 31-year-old was hauled off in the 58th minute and replaced by Ousmane Dembele during France’s clash with USA. Giroud collapsed the ground and clutched his face as his team-mates surrounded him at the Groupama stadium. The match was stopped for around five minutes as medical staff wrapped a large bandage around his head. After being thoroughly checked over, the former Arsenal star managed to walk off the field without any assistance. Miazga and the 31-year-old clashed heads as they jumped for a header following a corner kick. Half of Miazga’s face was covered in blood and he was replaced by American ace Erik Palmer-Brown. France were 1-0 down when the incident took place after Julian Green broke the deadlock in the first half. Shortly after Giroud’s departure, Kylian Mbappe levelled the scoring for Didier Deschamps’ side.
