A compilation of Olivier Giroud‘s greatest goals has gone viral online and the man himself simply had to reply to the clip.

Giroud is a World Cup winner with just short of 300 career goals to his name but for some reason it feels like he is slept on somewhat.

But fans of Chelsea, Arsenal and France will know that the 35-year-old is an incredibly gifted striker.

Although a great goalscorer in his own right, Giroud would probably be deserving of the “scorer of great goals” tag after scoring some absolutely sensational strikes.

And @CFCDUBois decided to shine a light on Giroud’s goodness, putting together his best bits for a clip that has now accrued 1.1 million views.

Titled, “Olivier Giroud’s Greatest career goals. Art”, the video has also received over 31,000 likes and 5,000 retweets.

It makes for a superb watch and helps you remember just how many stunning goals Giroud has scored.

There’s the scorpion kick that won the Puskas Award, two bicycle kick winners, a gorgeous self set-up volley and an exquisite touch and finish for Arsenal to name just a few.

In addition, featured is one of the most underrated goals ever seen for Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton when Giroud sat down their defence and goalkeeper with dreamy footwork.

As cliche as it is, Giroud has sublime technique for a man standing at 6ft 4 and may well be one of the most underappreciated players in recent history.

Giroud even chose the soundtrack and watched his own highlights. He seemed to enjoy it a lot judging by his quote tweet.

Even now the former Toulouse man is still going strong. He was on target in France’s 5-0 win over South Africa on Tuesday and is now just four goals away from usurping Thierry Henry as Les Bleus’ all-time top goalscorer.

At AC Milan this season, he’s hit 11 goals in 29 appearances.
