Giroud recently equaled Arsenal legend Thierry Henry's record as France’s all-time top goal scorer with 51 goals.
The former Chelsea attacker scored a brace as France came from behind to beat Australia 4-1 in a World Cup tie in Qatar.
“We must kneel before the career that he has had,” Wenger told French TV channel TF1.
“Absolutely nothing was given to him,” he added.
