Dani Alves is showing no signs of slowing down following his latest move to Brazilian side Sao Paulo.
The 36-year-old scored the winning goal against Caera on Sunday after being given the prestigious number 10 shirt at the Estádio do Morumbi.
It came as a surprise to many. Alves, who is most decorated player in football history, established himself as one of the world's best full backs during spells at Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain.
So to be given such an attacking squad number raised a few eyebrows.

But manager Alexi Stival, known as Cucia, put his faith in the veteran against Ceara and was given his just rewards.
Arriving into the box like a cultured playmaker, Alves took a couple of touches before finding the back of the net. The crowd erupted into euphoria as the veteran celebrated in style.
What a moment for Brazil's captain.

Alves has played out of position on a number of occasions down the years, even donning the goalkeeping gloves for Paris Saint Germain against Sochaux during the 2017/18 season.
In the 90th minute of their 4-1 win over Sochaux in the French Cup, goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was sent off and with no subs available,
Alves, despite being 5 ft 6, stepped up to the plate and kept a clean sheet in his short stint in goal.
Him directing his wall when the opposition had a free-kick was hilariously brilliant.
