Two weekends ago, Frenchman Olivier Giroud was ready for Milan.

And today it was time for the debut.

Milan faced French Nice away.

The first half ended goalless but then it picked up speed.

The home team took the lead on penalties through 21-year-old Amine Gouiri.

Happiness, however, would not last long.

Just minutes later, the newly acquired Olivier Giroud was replaced, for the first time in the Milan jersey.

Netted after four minutes

Giroud did not need much playing time to net in his debut.

It took four minutes for the French striker to stay ahead on a free kick.

He met the ball with his forehead when the ball went behind the goalkeeper.

A dream debut for Giroud in the Italian club.

The match ended 1-1.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was not included in the squad due to injury.
