Watch: Olivier Giroud scores on ridiculous scorpion kick for Arsenal

The only way to celebrate a scorpion score is with a scorpion dance.
Olivier Giroud did both Sunday against Crystal Palace at Emirates Stadium. Giroud put Arsenal up 1-0 on Crystal Palace in the 17th minute of the match.
Alexis Sanchez took a through-ball down the left flank and bounced it to Giroud with his right foot. The ball coasted over a defenders head, neatly behind Giroud. Giroud then flicked his right foot backwards and tapped the ball with his heel. The touch was just enough to get it into the near post for the opening score of the game.
Giroud celebrated the score with teammates by imitating various scorpion movements with his legs. Arsenal went on to win the match 2-0. The Gunners battle Preston at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7 at Deepdale.
