Giroud hits first-half hat-trick

Olivier Giroud maintained his fine pre-season form by scoring a hat trick in 45 minutes as Arsenal swept Vietnam aside in Hanoi

France striker Olivier Giroud netted a first-half hat-trick as Arsenal continued their pre-season schedule with a 7-1 win over a Vietnam XI at the My Dinh National Stadium.

• Limbert: Goals galore in Asia

Giroud, who had scored a brace in the Gunners' 7-0 romp over an Indonesian Dream Team at the weekend, put the tourists ahead inside five minutes after collecting a pass from Tomas Rosicky.

Arsenal - with Bacary Sagna deployed at centre-half - had to wait until just before the break to further extend their lead, as Lukas Podolski saw an effort chalked out for offside and then hit the post.

Giroud eventually made it 2-0 on 44 minutes, and then completed his treble with another neat finish from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's pass after Anh Duc had missed the home side's best chance.

Following the restart, England midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain slotted in number four after being set-up by Theo Walcott.

After a number of anticipated substitutions, England under-19 international Chuba Akpom scored a quickfire double (56, 59), the 17-year-old having replaced Giroud.

England midfielder Jack Wilshere then made his first appearance of the tour after he came on for Oxlade-Chamberlain just after the hour mark.

With 15 minutes left, defender Ignasi Miquel converted number seven after a powerful run and cross from attacking German midfielder Thomas Eisfeld.

The fanatical home crowd finally had something to cheer when Tran Manh Dung's effort looped up over substitute goalkeeper Damian Martinez, before the closing stages were played out in a thunderstorm.

There was still time for Vietnam goalkeeper Tran Buu Ngoc to be shown a red card after he handled outside his area as Wilshere ran clear on goal.

Arsenal will now head on to Japan for a training camp and a match against manager Arsene Wenger's former club Nagoya Grampus as well taking on Urawa Red Diamonds, before returning to London for the Emirates Cup on August 3-4.

Wenger felt the match was another important step on his squad's focus towards the new campaign.

He said, quoted on arsenal.com: "It was a game played with good pace and a good spirit. For us of course it was a good preparation for the season. We played at a good pace and overall it was a very positive night.

"Vietnam have qualities and I think they suffered a little bit defensively against our pace up front.''

Wenger was pleased with the way his team adjusted to the humidity. He added: "We learned to suffer physically because we had two hard sessions yesterday and we practised today.

"The conditions, the climate, are difficult for us so we had to learn to suffer a little bit and keep our concentration to keep the level of our game high.''
