Olivier Giroud’s bicycle kick goal is a must watch. However, it’s once again such a shame there are no fans in the stadium to see this goal by Chelsea’s Giroud. Imagine the roar of the crowd when Giroud scored off this bicycle kick that would turn out to be the game winner for Chelsea. And it was a Champions League match no less.
As far as a pure goal scoring forward, Giroud doesn’t kick enough credit for just how good he is. Giroud is an old school type target forward who knows how to hold on to the ball and help his team keep possession but he also scores goals.
