World Cup winner Olivier Giroud has ended his campaign without a single shot on target in 546 minutes of action.
The Chelsea striker played 81 minutes of Les Bleus' thrilling 4-2 final win over Croatia on Sunday where his woes in front of goal continued.
After failing to start France's first game against Australia, Giroud was introduced into the starting XI for the second group clash against Peru – a position he did not relinquish for the remainder of the tournament.
While he failed to pose much in the way of a goal threat, his physical presence allowed Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann to flourish, the duo causing havoc for defences throughout Russia 2018.
The closest Giroud came, interestingly, was in the only match of the tournament which ended goalless - France's clash with Denmark - which can be seen in the video below.

1 - There was just one goalless draw at the 2018 World Cup (France vs Denmark), the fewest at any World Cup tournament since 1954, when there were none. Entertained. #WorldCup #FRA pic.twitter.com/GZmr03YSUh — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) July 15, 2018
At the other end of the pitch, previously unheard of right-back Benjamin Pavard got himself into the stat books for all the right reasons, having never lost a match whilst representing his country.
0 - Benjamin Pavard 🇫🇷 has never lost a single game with the French national football team (12 with the seniors, 15 with the U21, 4 with the U19). Love ❤️. #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/SZhkOOxQRv — OptaJean (@OptaJean) July 15, 2018
Unlike goalshy Giroud, young Pavard will no doubt have an abundance of suitors lining up for his signature this summer after having scored one of the goals of the tournament against Lionel Messi's Argentina to announce his arrival on the grandest of stages.
3 - @BenPavard28 🇫🇷 is the 3rd @VfB_int player to win the @FIFAWorldCup after #Dunga 🇧🇷 1994 and Guido #Buchwald 🇩🇪 1990. Heir. #FRACRO #WorldCupFinal pic.twitter.com/Fi7tqVXkrZ — OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) July 15, 2018
