Thierry Henry could have warned them but instead he was left to watch on in disbelief as Toronto FC attempted to perfect a penalty routine made famous by him and Robert Pires 15 years ago.  

The infamous clip, taken at Highbury against Manchester City in October 2005, saw Pires fluff his lines from the penalty spot as he decided an audacious pass to an onrushing Henry. 

He only skimmed the ball for his pass and City managed to clear and it has remained on the Premier League's most iconic moments.
