The end of Saturday’s game brought a lot of emotions to the fans. First, Christian Pulisic gave the Rossoneri a one-goal lead, and in extra time there was a huge upset.
Mike Maignan received a red card and since the coach had no more substitutions at his disposal, Olivier Giroud stepped up. The Milan sniper played the role of goalkeeper and rose to the challenge.
The hosts were luckier as they also lost their goalkeeper. Josep Martinez was replaced by nominal goalkeeper Nicolas Layali.
In the 14th minute of stoppage time, George Puskas had a wonderful opportunity to equalize the score. The Romanian ran into the penalty area, but Giroud blocked his way. The French actor made a very sacrificial intervention and saved Milan from conceding a goal.

After a wonderful save, Giroud drowned in the arms of his friends at the club. The 37-year-old was the undisputed champion in the 1-0 win.
– I gathered my courage and went to get the ball. I didn’t think I would experience these kind of feelings. It was almost like I scored a goal. I was the tallest, so I stood between the two posts. As a child, I loved being a goalkeeper – he recalls in front of the DAZN camera.
