Leading Three-1 towards BATE Borisov, Arsenal have been awarded a penalty when Shkodran Mustafi was once introduced down within the field.
Giroud stepped ahead and coolly scored his 2d of the season to hit a century of goals, 5 years on from the similar week that he were given his first towards Coventry City in 2012.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed the striker, who has had his fair proportion of critics over the seasons.
Giroud were given to 99 goals with a overdue winner towards Leicester at the opening day of the Premier League season and has needed to wait over a month to achieve the landmark.
But talking after the fit, the striker expressed his pride at hitting the milestone.
“Yes, I’m very proud of that,” Giroud mentioned.
“It’s been a couple of weeks.
“To be fair with you I used to be anticipating this objective, however every so often you shoot with out taking a look at the objective and it is going in, whilst every so often you’re suffering a little bit extra with dangerous good fortune or misfortune.
“I’m glad and I’m happy for myself and hopefully more will come.”
