Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud didn’t waste any time submitting his offering for 2017 goal of the year. In the 17th minute of his club’s New Year’s Day Premier League match against Crystal Palace, he broke a scoreless draw with an unbelievable heel kick volley from behind his head.
Giroud’s unreal ‘scorpion kick’ finish was the goal of the match, and a hell of a way to start 2017.
Check out the unreal goal:
