We brought you the news a few days ago that Marseille and Toulon would have a very bizarre charity match today that would be half rugby and half football, with Eric Cantona reffing one half of the game.

While it was all very odd, Cantona got involved in playing during the second half (the rugby half of the game) and stepped up to take this penalty with the oval ball, before cheekily dinking it on the crossbar.

All that's missing is a collar for him to flick up before he takes it. C'est magnifique!
