Giroud Scores!

By Gary Watton
November 8 2018

We were treated to the rarity of a Morata double on Sunday past, and four days later another collector's item pops up, namely a goal from the notoriously non-scoring Olivier Giroud. The French Muppet with the stupid beard got himself onto a cross from Emerson and successfully headed the ball in at the near post. He also had another excellent scoring opportunity from a header but he directed it straight at the goalkeeper. The visitors will be extremely pleased to leave Belarus unscathed, as the hosts thrice hit the woodwork and probably deserved at least one point for their endeavours. Nevertheless the London club have now taken a maximum twelve points from their first four group matches and are already comfortably through to the knockout stages, with two fixtures to spare. Hopefully the manager will employ some more young and peripheral players in the remaining two dead rubbers, thereby furnishing them with valuable game time, as the team winds its way through a congested list of footballing commitments.
