HE MAY BE 35, but Robin van Persie is still banging them in at boyhood club Feyenoord these days. 

The ex-Arsenal and Manchester United striker produced an unstoppable 88th-minute free-kick to clinch a 2-1 victory for his side over Vitesse Arnhem yesterday. 

That wasn’t his last involvement, however, as captain Van Persie was shown a straight red card in injury-time thanks to an over-the-top challenge.
