Wesley Sneijder Received The Most Incredible Farewell After Final Netherlands Game

In a 15 year stint with his country, the midfielder bagged 31 goals and 31 assists, as well as reaching a World Cup final among other achievements.

It begs the questions: how do you celebrate such an incredible individual feat?

Organisers managed to pull out all the stops after he made an emotional bow in the historic Johan Cruyff Arena, creating a cozy living-room-style setting in the middle of the pitch.

Sneijder's family accompanied the 34-year-old as highlights and goodwill messages played on the TV.

Before that, the midfielder was thrown aloft by teammates and given a standing ovation as the crowd held huge banners in his honour.

It was a special moment for a very special player.



Take a bow, Wesley.
