Stunning goal by Kluivert in charity match. A Holland call-up next?
He’s already 39, but the goal-scoring instinct has never left him.
Former Barcelona striker Patrick Kluivert showed just what magic he still packs in those boots during a charity game between Barca Legends and Uganda All Stars at the weekend, thumping in a stupendous goal from about 35 metres out.
Spotting the goalkeeper out of position, the ex-Holland international unleashed a powerful, dipping shot with the outside of his right boot to stun the crowd and players alike.
Kluivert, who hung up his boots about seven years ago, won league championships with Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona during his career.
He was Holland’s all-time leading goal-scorer with 40 goals until Robin van Persie overtook him in 2013.
