Olivier Giroud left the pitch covered in blood after a horrific clash of heads with Chelsea team-mate Matt Miazga.
The 31-year-old was hauled off in the 58th minute and replaced by Ousmane Dembele during France’s clash with USA.
Giroud collapsed the ground and clutched his face as his team-mates surrounded him at the Groupama stadium.
The match was stopped for around five minutes as medical staff wrapped a large bandage around his head.
After being thoroughly checked over, the former Arsenal star managed to walk off the field without any assistance.
Miazga and the 31-year-old clashed heads as they jumped for a header following a corner kick.
Half of Miazga’s face was covered in blood and he was replaced by American ace Erik Palmer-Brown.
France were 1-0 down when the incident took place after Julian Green broke the deadlock in the first half.
Shortly after Giroud’s departure, Kylian Mbappe levelled the scoring for Didier Deschamps’ side.
