The Arsenal ace is confident that he

will get an opportunity to shine in

Brazil this summer, after netting a

double in a warm-up game in Paris

on Monday night

France striker Olivier Giroud believes

he will have an important role to

play at the World Cup after scoring

twice in their 4-0 win over Norway .

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema

is expected to be Didier Deschamps'

first-choice forward in Brazil but was

rested for the Stade de France

friendly on account of his exploits in

Saturday's Champions League final.

Giroud shone in his absence and

feels that every single member of

the France squad will have a role to

play in Brazil.

"At the World Cup, everyone will be

needed," the Arsenal attacker is

quoted as saying by L'Equipe .

"When I am called upon, I try to

make the most of my chance and do

the job.

"It's always good to win, including in

friendlies. It's good for morale.

Tonight, I really want to highlight

the team effort. It was really good.

Still, we'll stay measured, we still

have to pass tests."

France's World Cup campaign kicks

off with a game against Honduras on

June 15, before they clash with

Switzerland and Ecaudor.
