“Show something else” – Olivier Giroud rallying up his Arsenal teammates in the tunnel at half time during Preston win (Video)

Arsenal scraped a late winner against lower league opposition Preston North End in their FA Cup tie thanks to a late Olivier Giroud winner. However, the Londoners had to work hard to get through to the next round or even avoid a replay of the same fixture due to drawing the match.

After going down in the first half, goals from Aaron Ramsey and Giroud – who was the captain for the day – were enough to get the job done for the Gunners. Arsene Wenger later praised the French striker for displaying good leadership qualities, saying he deserved the captaincy.

A video from the tunnel area at Preston showed just why Wenger trusted the striker with the armband. Talking to his team-mates in order to get their spirits up, Giroud can be heard saying to “show something else”, perhaps in a bid to avoid getting knocked out so early in the competition.
