VIDEO: Giroud’s scorpion goal that set Twitter ablaze

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud’s 17th minute sensational goal against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium has triggered a Twitter frenzy, even a hashtag of its own #scorpionking, the description of the back heel-flicked goal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger  who spoke after Sunday’s 2–0 win over Crystal Palace, suggested that it could be remembered as the Giroud goal that nobody will forget.

He said  that the reflex necessary to convert  back–heel strike into a goal, transformed the movement into art.
