VIDEO: Arsenal Striker Olivier Giroud Shows Off Impressive Keepy Uppy Skills With A Rugby Ball

Olivier Giroud and his Arsenal teammates nearly pulled off the biggest comeback in Champions League history last night against Monaco.

The Frenchman recorded an impressive score of 29… not too shabby, especially considering his country are 4th in the table for the Six Nations!
