Robin van Persie rolled back the years with a scintillating free-kick to secure a late win over Vitesse, before he was sent off just three minutes later.
The Dutchman is 35 now but his cultured left foot has not aged one bit, nor has his sublime ability from dead-ball situations.
And today he demonstrated it perfectly by curling in a sensational long-range free-kick in the 87th minute, scoring a winner for the second game in a row and sealing yet another crucial victory for his side

Robin Van Persie can still ball. Absolute laser from 10 yards outside the box on a free kick, gives Feyenoord the lead.- Matt Faler (@MattFalerMMA) September 30, 2018
It will be a familiar sight for Manchester United and Arsenal fans - if they are over him leaving yet.
Back in his second spell in the red and white of Feyenoord, van Persie has been in brilliant form, scoring six goals in seven games this season despite playing in a much deeper role.
He did make things a tad more difficult for his second after his heroics though after the skipper was sent off in stoppage time for a late lunge when he attempted to win possession back.
2012 - Robin van Persie is the first Feyenoord player with a goal and a red card in an Eredivisie game since John Guidetti in Feb 2012 (v RKC). Contrast.- OptaJohan (@OptaJohan) September 30, 2018
A third red card of the game followed when Vitesse's Danilho Doekhi was sent off deep into injury time, with Feyenoord holding out for the home win.
