  • Olivier Giroud wowed the crowd with an overhead kicked goal in the 85th minute of the Red Star Belgrade vs Arsenal game in Serbia.
  • The build-up was equally as impressive as Jack Wilshere moved around Red Star’s defence as if they were cones on a training ground.
  • Arsenal has nine points from three games in its Europa League group after the 1-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.

Stop what you’re doing and watch this.

What you’re about to see is the football equivalent of a work of art — a goal that contained nine accurate passes, technical finesse from midfielder Jack Wilshere, and an incredible overhead strike from Olivier Giroud.

It was the only goal of Red Star Belgrade’s game against Arsenal on Thursday evening and was only scored in the 85th minute — but boy, was it worth waiting for.

You can watch the goal right here.

Giroud’s strike was enough to settle the match in Arsenal’s favour.

The Europa League victory extended the club’s lead at the top of Group H as Arsenal now has nine points from three games, five points ahead of BATE Borisov in second.

Arsenal’s next Europa League game is against Red Star Belgrade, this time at the Emirates Stadium in London, on Thursday November 2.
