Arsenal striker booed by his own fans (Video)

Watch this glaring miss...

Arsenal’s forwards haven’t had the best start to the season.

Theo Walcott had a nightmare against Newcastle, Danny Welbeck will likely be on the sidelines for the next six months, and now Olivier Giroud has suffered the ignominy of being booed by his own fans.

Giroud was playing for France against Serbia in a pre-Euro 2016 friendly when he came in for flak from Les Bleus supporters.

France won the game, thanks in no small part to this thunderbolt from Blaise Matuidi, but former Montpellier striker Giroud was made a scapegoat after missing a host of chances.

He was eventually withdrawn for Karim Benzema, something Arsenal fans probably wish had happened at club level over the summer, but not before this glaring miss.

Still happy you didn’t sign a striker, Arsene?
