Santi Cazorla was given the chance to recreate Thierry Henry’s famous goal against Manchester United… and nailed it on his second attempt.

The midfielder’s first response when asked to replicate the goal from back in 2000 was that it was too difficult. He didn’t seem too optimistic. But after fluffing the first attempt, the little Spaniard nailed it.

I’m not sure what was more delightful to watch: the goal or Santi’s happiness at actually scoring it on the second try. How can you not love him?

Granit Xhaka was also on hand to promptly shine his shoes in celebration.
