Football: Arsenal record another big pre-season win in Hanoi

HANOI (AFP) - Arsenal thrashed the Vietnamese national team 7-1 on Wednesday at the My Dinh Stadium.

French forward Olivier Giroud scored a first-half hat-trick, and has five goals in two games on the Gunners' Asian tour, after scoring twice in Sunday's 7-0 win over the Indonesian Dream Team in Jakarta.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chuba Akpom (two goals) and Mikel Arteta completed the scoring.

Tran Manh Dung scored a consolation in the 78th minute, delighting the home crowd, who went wild as the Vietnamese forward stripped off his shirt and ran across the pitch in celebration.
