France striker Olivier Giroud has insisted that his side always believed they could earn a result against Spain after his equaliser secured Les Blues a 1-1 draw in Madrid.
"We believed until the end, it is something extraordinary coming back from a game like this because we had opportunities throughout the game," Giroud told TF1.
"This is really deserved because the whole group remained supportive. Today, it is me who made the difference and it's nice because I only played five minutes. It was really good and we all believed until the end."
Giroud's goal stopped Spain winning a qualifying match for the first time since 2007.
