Watch Dennis Bergkamp show he's still got it by scoring a cracker in an Ajax memorial match

Dennis Bergkamp may be 48 years old, but he looks like he could still get the job done for Arsenal if you gave him a 10-minute substitute appearance and asked him to grab a goal.

The Ajax assistant manager laced the boots back up for a match in memory of former Ajax star Dick van Dijk, who passed away some 20 years ago. There was a visible addition to his waist region, and a little less hair up top, but the skill? The skill is clearly still there.

Bergkamp may not have the legs, but the touch never ever leaves a master. He's still got the shiftiness too, and the touch and body control to roll his defender before hitting the perfect curler? Vintage Bergkamp. The Dutch master is one of the greatest to ever do it, and highlights like this are a great reminder of just how incredible a player he was at the height of his powers.
