Thierry Henry has finally made amends for a rare low point in his Arsenal career after the legendary French striker successfully performed a penalty trick he and Robert Pires famously made a hash of eight years ago.
Henry and Pires attempted to replicate a sneaky penalty set-piece initially scored by Johan Cruyff and Jesper Olsen for Ajax in the 1980s, but contrived to fluff their lines when presented with the opportunity against Manchester City.
Pires tried to knock the ball into the path of an advancing Henry when it appeared the former was about to shoot at goal, but did nothing more than stumble over the ball - leaving his Arsenal teammate baffled.
Arsenal had already scored a penalty that afternoon at Highbury - coming from Pires in more conventional fashion - and neither he nor Henry have summoned the courage to attempt their audacious trick again.
That was, of course, until the weekend, when Henry teamed up with Florent Malouda to successfully execute the move in a Lionel Messi-backed charity match in Chicago.
This time Henry took the role of Pires to ensure the operation went smoothly, with the former providing the pass for Malouda to score.
