Olivier Giroud Confirms He Will Keep To Promise Of Shaving His Head
Olivier Giroud is a man of his word and because of that, as well as France winning the World Cup, we're going to have to get used to seeing him without any hair.
The World Cup hasn't even been over a week and already we're less than three weeks away from starting the Premier League which will see a bunch of Frenchman return to their club sides beaming and gloating a little bit.
Olivier Giroud will be constantly reminding his teammates at Chelsea that he won the World Cup, without even needing to say anything.
Before the World Cup Giroud promised that if France won the World Cup he would shave his head, something he had to be reminded of live on television after the final:

So should we really expect a bald Giroud come the beginning of the season? Well he told French outlet Nice-Matin that the shaving would take place after his son's baptism, presumably so they can get some nice family photos with the hair before it goes.

Hugo Lloris: a pub crawl in Nice
Nabil Fékir & Olivier Giroud: Shaved head
Blaise Matuidi: Paris to Turin cycle
Thomas Lemar: Dye his hair
Adil Rami: Fight Teddy Riner
Perhaps he changed because the pub crawls sounds more fun than an actual punishment.
It's Blaise Matuidi I feel sorry for. The Juventus midfielder has a roughly 770 km cycle on his hands, a journey that takes seven and a half hours to drive, according to Google Maps, never mind cycle.
Giroud with no hair is going to take some time to get used to.
