(Watch Goal & Highlights) Olivier Giroud scores on debut with first touch to save AC Milan blushes in preseason friendly

Olivier Giroud made a magnificent Milan debut, scoring with his first touch to give them a 1-1 friendly draw away to OGC Nice after a very soft penalty.

Ndoye went down rather easily under slight contact from Rade Krunic, winning a penalty for the hosts, converted by Gouiri, squirming under the arm of a very hesitant Ciprian Tatarusanu.

Giroud received his Milan debut and took precisely four minutes to get his name on the scoresheet, essentially with his first touch of the ball, nodding in the Samu Castillejo free kick.

The former Chelsea striker was feeling right at home on French soil and in the Rossoneri jersey, although in this case it was white, because hosts Nice also wear red and black stripes.

It was the ideal start to this new chapter of the France international’s career, after Milan finally prised him away from Chelsea for €1m plus up to another €1m in bonuses.
