Olivier Giroud says he has no regrets about decision to stay at Arsenal after scoring again for France

We were given a double whammy this morning when we found out that Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud had both been sent back from worldwide duty, after facing each other in a friendly game last week, which France won 2-0 with Giroud scoring.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey pulled out of Wales squad ahead of their clash against Panama.

'I'm sure Arsene was watching, especially because Aaron [Ramsey] was playing too, ' he said.

Whilst Mustafi is still nursing a muscular injury of his own, as he tries to get back to full fitness in time for this weekend's crunch game at the Emirates.

"I feel in the best shape of my career".

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud insists he has no regrets over his decision to stay at the Premier League club even though he's yet to make a Premier League start this season and has scored just once in 10 substitute appearances.

The France worldwide has stated that he is happy at Arsenal despite not being guaranteed a place in the starting lineup. 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". It's my 29th goal for France so I still have to score one more goal to reach Jean-Pierre Papin who was one of my favourite players.

"I'm very grateful. I'm very proud and I always try to bring something to the national team".

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's clash, Coleman said that he knew Wales would only have Ramsey for one of the two friendlies during the worldwide break before allaying Arsenal fans' fears over his fitness ahead of Saturday's clash.
