Yes! Arsenal have qualified into the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. You just have to love this team –they always deliver when the chips are down. A 3-0 scoreline was the least result I expected since the Olympiacos team was more like a bogey team.
We brought this on ourselves in the first place and we just had to put things right. On the night when some players needed to step up their performances, they all performed superbly but Giroud raised his head up to be counted.
The Frenchman converted in the 29th and 49th minute of the game. Wait a minute, he scored a hat-trick. Yes! Oliver Giroud scored a hat-trick. His first in an Arsenal shirt. what a way to go.
The Arsenal fans everywhere in the world are buzzing right now and the writer of this piece is no exception.
Romping into twitter to see the fans reaction only to notice that Giroud was trending. Here are some of the best tweets eulogizing the 29-year-old.
HATERS KEEP HATING, OLIVIER GIROUD KEEPS SCORING!

Giroud has been criticised a lot and has been the scapegoat, but he loves he fans and gives his everything. His commitment is unquestionable

Anyone that slates Giroud after this performance; anyone that much as tweet any trash from now onwards about our LOVELY Giroud is a dunce

So Giroud doesn't score in big games huh? He scored a hat trick in such a difficult fixture in the biggest game of the season. 5 in 4 days.
