The defending champions face Argentina who got to the final by beating Croatia 3-0.
Speaking with TribalFootball, Giroud, who currently plays his club football at AC Milan, said, “Messi is an incredible player, but we’re not going to let him enjoy the best night he can have. We want to win this game. We want to win another World Cup.
“We will try everything to stop him. But there is not only Messi in that team. They’ve got great players who work for the team also. I think that is why they are so strong.”
