The Most Fitting Tribute To Robert Pires' Birthday

By Liam Godinho
Share this article

Former Arsenal player Robert Pires turns 40 today. In tribute, fourth division Austrian side Stadl-Paura attempted to recreate Pires and Thierry Henry's infamous failed penalty routine against Manchester City in 2005.

In true spirit, Stadl-Paura got their recreation wrong, with the Pires of the piece getting too much contact on the ball rather than too little. Stadl-Paura won the game 5-1.

Here's Pires and Henry's attempt.
