The Football World Was Blown Away By Olivier Giroud's Incredible Scorpion Kick Goal

Football fans were foaming at the mouth after a simply stunning Olivier Giroud scorpion kick goal against Crystal Palace at the Emirates.

"The best goal I've ever seen", said Gary Neville for Sky Sports.

Most of us would find it hard to argue with that statement.

20 minutes into Arsenal v Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium and Oliver Giroud scores a goal that had the crowd audibly gasping in the same way the Old Trafford faithful were celebrating Henrikh Mikhitaryan's similarly outrageous effort against Sunderland on Boxing Day.

And those watching in Ireland and abroad were making similar noises of exaltation, albeit from keyboards/phones rather than vocally.
