Olivier Giroud kicked off his season in typically elegant fashion with this sweet left-foot belter for Arsenal against Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday afternoon at Wembley. The Frenchman’s goal put Arsenal 3-0 up, which was the final score.
Some Twitter types suggested a deflection. Monsieur Giroud does not do deflections. If it did get another touch, he meant it.
Welcome to England, Willy Caballero.
