Olivier Giroud scored a superb hat-trick for France on Friday evening in a huge 5-0 win over Paraguay – but Arsenal fans largely failed to congratulate him on Twitter.

The 30-year-old striker found the back of the net from close range three times, scoring a perfect hat-trick, as Didier Deschamps’ side ran riot in Rennes.

As well as Giroud, Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko and Antoine Griezmann also got their names on the score sheet for their country.

The former Montpellier striker’s future at the Emirates Stadium is in doubt with Arsene Wenger giving preference to the likes of Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez this season.

Despite only starting 17 of his 40 league and cup encounters this season, Giroud still managed to find the back of the net 16 times as well as laying on seven assists.

Arsenal fans reacted on Twitter with the club’s interests at heart instead of applauding Giroud, with some stating that he is still for sale and hoping the hat-trick raises his market value.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Giroud is set for an interesting transfer window with his future up in the air, even though he has two years remaining on his current contract.
