Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud led the attack with aplomb as France annihilated Iceland 5-2 in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals.

Olivier Giroud has come under a lot of flak from both France and Arsenal fans, but he was at his clinical best against Iceland. The 29-year-old striker began and ended proceedings for Les Blues, as they romped to a definitive victory against the underdogs, who had beaten England in the previous stage of the competition.

Giroud opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a thumping first touch finish from a fine Balise Matuidi pass from the halfway line. He then scored a characteristic header in the 52nd minute to score his second and France’s fifth goal, silencing the critics who claimed he wasn’t a top class central striker.
