France International, Oliver Giroud, was the hero for the Blues yesterday during their Europa league last group stage match against Hungarian side, Videoton, at MOL Aréna Sóstó.
With Chelsea trailing by two goals to one, the former Arsenal striker was sent into the fray and he didn’t disappoint as he forced the tie into a draw with a beautiful free kick. What made the free kick so special is that one of the opposition’s defender was right guiding the post and the ball still went pass him.
This has got fans reacting on social media as some have started comparing him to Argentina International, Lionel Messi, who is renowned for scoring wonderful free kicks.

What fans are saying:
The kind of goals giroud has scored in his career tho.
Its the year 3036 and a group of kids are probably watching video compilations of giroud's all time career goals. They'd highkey probably think he is the best striker to ever play on earth💙😂

Giroud has now scored unbelievable volleys, bullet ground shots, bullet headers, saucy technical goals and now a perfect free kick. Cementing his place as one of the most complete strikers of the modern era.

Olivier Giroud making an absolute mockery of this defender’s decision to stand on the post for his free-kick, the big, impossibly handsome bastard. pic.twitter.com/ZMgVK6czPg
