Olivier Giroud’s superb scorpion kick goal for Arsenal against Crystal Palace has been voted by fans around the world as the best goal of the 2016/17 Season. He beat off other goals that made the top three.
It is surprising to know that the same goal came second to Andy Carrol’s goal for Westham in January 2017 and also didn’t win the Premier League goal of the season. Are you thinking what I am thinking?
