The technique he used was similar to that of Mesut Ozil’s against Liverpool

Giroud has now scored 52 goals for France, one more than former Gunner and Barcelona star Thierry Henry.

But Ozil was quick to spot the technique used by Giroud to convert the chance.

The AC Milan striker was found by a sliced pass from Kylian Mbappe and struck the ball into the ground with his left foot leading it to bounce over the goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and into the goal.

A brace from Mbappe helped France seal their spot in the next round of the World Cup.

It was remarkably similar to the technique Ozil used throughout his seven-year stay at Arsenal.

It was the same way that Ozil managed to fire past Simon Mignolet for his goal against Liverpool in 2017.

And Ozil cheekily tweeted Giroud enquiring as to where he may have picked up the skill, he said: “Nice goal… who taught you that bro.”

Along with the caption, Ozil attached a GIF of the two of them during their time at Arsenal.

In an interview with GOAL, Ozil revealed why he uses the technique, he said: “As a player you always want to try and discover new things.

“So if I think of something new I want to try it on the pitch and see how it works.

“So with this technique you kind of eliminate that because you hit the ball harder, it then travels faster and it’s harder to stop.”
