France booked their spot at the World Cup in Russia next summer with a 2-1 win over Belarus in Paris last night.

Arsenal hitman Olivier Giroud doubled les Bleus' lead on 33 minutes after Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring shortly before t he half-hour mark.

Anton Saroka pulled one back for the visitors but it was not enough and the Arsenal man wound up with much of the post-match praise by virtue of the fact that his goal turned out to be the winner in the French capital.

In doing so, Giroud also became his country's seventh-most prolific goalscorer of all time for what was his 28th goal in 68th cap.

And Arsenal fans were quick to praise the 31-year-old striker on Twitter afterwards.

Giroud bagged his 100th Arsenal goal when the Gunners beat Bate Borisov in the Europa League last month.

Signed for £12 million in 2012, the former Montpellier man is an often-underrated member of the Emirates Stadium club - and perhaps still is in spite of centurion status - but his goals for club and country don't lie: Giroud is a very gifted forward.
