Such an effort provoked scenes of sheer jubilation at the Emirates Stadium and came just two minutes after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey looked to have rescued a point for the inconsistent Gunners after blasting in from close range.

Wenger has always been desperate to keep Giroud because he offers something so different with his aerial presence but was also willing to let him leave if he felt that he needed a guarantee that he would start more regularly in this World Cup season.

“The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough”.

After his late goal many Arsenal fans took to social media to react where they stated that Arsene Wenger should never sell the forward, while other supporters compared him to the likes of club legend Thierry Henry.

‘When we thought about the key qualities, they were the experience, the gravitas for a club like this, a record of success in the game. “One was a corner, one on build-up, one on a corner again”, he said.
