Sergio Aguero once scored a sensational goal as a teenager at Independiente, that hinted at the kind of career he was going to have.
Aguero was forced to hang up his boots on Wednesday afternoon, nearly two months after his final appearance for Barcelona, just his fifth for the club.
The striker's career has come to an end due to a heart problem, suffered during the Alaves game back in October, bringing a premature conclusion to one of the best careers in the era.
Aguero's main success came at Manchester City but before that he was at Atletico Madrid, who signed him from Argentina side Independiente.
He made his debut for his home town club at just 15-years-old and just two years later he scored a goal worthy of any Argentinian legend, as he ran through half of Racing's team to make it 4-0.
Speaking at the press conference to announce his forced retirement, the 33-year-old reminisced about the goal he referred to as the greatest in his career.
"A very nice goal that I made in Independiente. A very nice moment in my career, against Racing," the former Barcelona striker said.
"I have nothing against Racing, but I was 17 years old. It was my most beautiful first goal."
Scoring that as a teenager almost certainly would have had fans, the media and pundits comparing the forward to the great Diego Maradona.
It's also reminiscent of the type of goal that Lionel Messi would score, either that that age or any time during his career, with the pair of course going on to become friends.
They won the Under 20 World Cup together in 2005 and shared further success at the Olympic Games three years later, winning gold in Beijing.
A lack of success with the national team's senior team haunted them throughout their careers but finally last summer they won the Copa America, Aguero's last silverware before calling it a day.
Whilst the strike against Independiente might be his best, there's no doubt what his most famous goal is, the strike that won Manchester City their first Premier League title in 2012.
