Robin Van Persie who is known as one of the best strikers of his generation has finally hanged his boots from the round leather game.
Van Persie played his final professional game for boyhood club Feyenoord before announcing his retirement from football.
He scored 144 Premier League goals in 280 appearances to emerge the highest-scoring player from the Netherlands in English top-flight history.
Persie spent eight years with Arsenal before leaving the Gunners for a move to Manchester United in 2012 where he won the Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson.
And for his country Holland, Van Persie scored 52 goals in 101 senior appearances, before he quit international football.
The 35-year-old rolled back the years with an incredible free-kick in the 35th minute to restore parity for his boyhood club.
Feyenoord found themselves a goal behind in the closely-contested match before Van Persie curled the ball to the back of the net.
