Photo: Arsenal flop Bendtner clashes with Giroud

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud battled it out with his former teammate Nicklas Bendtner last night.

Arsenal players past and present battled it out as France defeated Denmark on Sunday night.

Current forward Olivier Giroud scored France's second of the game to give Les Bleus a 2-0 victory in Paris.

Lyon's prolific attacker Alexandre Lacazette had scored the opening goal in the friendly clash.

Bendtner meanwhile was hoping to build on his surprise hat-trick scored against USA in a 3-2 win in midweek.

He was unable to, coming closest to connecting to a Michael Krohn-Deli cross, and admitted his frustration at not scoring.

He told Danish website "I myself am disappointed. I only just touched it with the hair. I actually think that the ball was touched by a player before it reached up to me. It would be great if it had gone in.

On the game itself he added: "I even felt that I could have done better."

Bendtner left Arsenal in the summer as a free agent after the Gunners decided not to renew his contract.

He signed with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, but has struggled to earn a starting role, scoring four goals in limited appearances as a substitute.

There is one area in which he outdoes Giroud however. Last night's goal was the Frenchman's 10th international goal, while Bendtner has 29 for Denmark in total.
