Many fodboldelskere probably remember Robert Pires' and Thierry Henry failed straffesparksfinte from a match against Manchester City in 2005.
The two frenchmen tried to imitate Johan Cruyffs and Jesper Olsen's famous straffesparksfinte from 1982, but it did not go exactly according to plan, and the two stars was subsequently well and truly a laughing stock.

Saturday tried the two Al-Gharafa players Mehdi Taremi and Abdulaziz Hatem to imitate the famous feint in a Qatar Stars League match against Al Rayyan, and it went a little better than when Pires and Henry tried.
It succeeded namely Hatem to confuse both the goalie and defense from the stain, but Taremis end was, unfortunately, so weak and badly timed, that it is not caused Al Rayyan goalkeeper Fahad Baker some problems.
Despite the burnt penalty kick won the Al-Gharafa showdown with 4-2.
