France striker Olivier Giroud's lack of pace made fun of by everyone
With Germany dominating the first half of their Euro 2016 semifinal against France, a chance fell to France striker Olivier Giroud, who got in behind the German defence with only goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to beat.
But Giroud hardly even troubled Germany's keeper, mainly because his pace, or lack thereof, made it easy for German defender Benedikt Howedes to catch up and block the Arsenal man's shot. (France went on to win 2-0.)
You can only guess what happened next....
