When anyone mentions the name Dennis Bergkamp, most football fans will immediately think of the vast array of stunning goals and sumptuous skills that he frequently displayed throughout a glittering career at the very highest level of the professional game.

Despite the sheer number of electrifying performances that the Dutchman churned out - particularly during his successful 11-year stint with Arsenal in the Premier League - most fans overriding memory of Bergkamp will surely be 'that' goal against Newcastle United at St James' Park in March 2002.

After collecting the ball on the edge of the box, the so-called 'Non-flying Dutchman' produced a truly mesmerising flick to bamboozle Nikos Dabizas before showing great strength to hold off the challenge of the Greek defender before slotting home. 

In an indoor youth encounter against Ajax, an Anderlecht player - who is believed to be just eight-years-old - produced a similarly breathtaking goal that had all the hallmarks of Bergkamp's legendary finish. 

If anything, the youngster's goal was better as, in addition to the expert flick, he also embarrassed the goalkeeper with a sublime dummy before keeping cool to finish emphatically.

Check out the footage of the remarkable goal above.
