Our 11th FA Cup win at Hull came in unexpected circumstances – but for Olivier Giroud that made the experience all the more memorable.
Trailing 2-0 after just 10 minutes, we found ourselves on the ropes before battling back to win 3-2 courtesy of an extra-time winner from Aaron Ramsey.
For Giroud that game will forever live in the memory due to the dramatic fightback.
“The first trophy – the first cup – in 2014, was an amazing moment and a great feeling when I backheeled the ball to Aaron and he finished,” Giroud said.
“At the beginning of the game it was a nightmare, honestly. Santi scored a fantastic free-kick, we were really thinking that we could come back but we needed this goal before half-time because 2-0 down could’ve been very difficult to come back from.
“The thing is, because it was a bad start it was even more exciting to win it.
“The scenario of the game made it beautiful at the end of the day. I’ve lost a couple of finals and now I can say that it is obviously much better to win it and especially after the Euros final.
“I am very happy to see these pictures and hopefully we will have some more to come.”
