Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud scored a stunning free-kick to help Chelsea seal a point against MOL Vidi, having come on as a substitute for the injured Alvaro Morata just before half-time, which earned us a point in Hungary.
The game looked to be heading Chelsea’s way when Willian scored Chelsea’s first with a fine free-kick. The lead didn’t last though moments later when Ampadu, who was making his first start of the season, headed into his own net from a Vidi corner.
Loic Nego then hammered a volley beyond Willy Caballero to give Vidi the lead in the second half before substitute Olivier Giroud equalised late on for Chelsea.
Speaking about his free-kick, Giroud said: “It was good from me because I scored but I can’t be happy because we wanted the win.
“We are a competitive team and we want to win every single game.”
Giroud has now scored four goals in his last three Europa League games, and last night’s strike, a sublime free-kick, was undoubtedly the pick of the bunch.
Giroud who isn’t a regular free-kick taker admitted he had to beg for the opportunity.
“I’m happy with my free-kick,” he said. “I don’t normally have the chance to take them, Willi is in front, but I asked if I could take it and luckily it went in.”
