OTD Bergkamp scores final Arsenal goal

On 15 April 2006, Dennis Bergkamp scored his final ever goal for Arsenal.

The Arsenal legend came on as a second-half substitute against West Brom at Highbury.

The match had already been nominated ‘Dennis Bergkamp Day’ to commemorate his career before he retired and fans were given orange DB10 shirts.

The Gunners initially took the lead with a goal from Alexander Hleb but an equaliser from Nigel Quashie at the other end left Arsenal searching for a winner.

It came via Bergkamp, who set up Robert Pires.

Bergkamp then scored in the 89th minute to bring the scoreline to 3-1.

It was his 87th league goal for the Gunners and his 315th appearances. It was also the perfect send off and lovely way to cap off a phenomenal footballing career, which included playing for Ajax and Inter, as well as the Dutch national team.

Although the non-flying Dutchman was an unused sub against Barcelona, he didn’t play or score again.
