Hat-trick hero Olivier Giroud admits relief after Arsenal qualify for CL last 16 (Video)

CVz2S03WwAE3aN3Arsenal hero Olivier Giroud has expressed his relief that the Gunners have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Gunners did what many people thought was impossible, and beat Olympiakos convincingly in Athens to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger’s side needed to win by a two goal margin, or a one goal margin greater then 3-2 in order to qualify from their group, and the Arsenal players delivered winning comfortably by a scoreline of 3-0.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was the Gunners’ hero, as the Frenchman grabbed a hat-trick for his team.

Giroud scored with a header in the first half to send Arsenal 1-0 up at the break, before the 29-year-old bagged two more goals in the second half to seal the Reds’ progression into the knockout rounds.
