As announced Sunday prior to the club's 2018 finale against D.C. United, Chicago Fire forward Alan Gordon is set to retire from professional soccer after a remarkable 15-season career in Major League Soccer.
Throughout the day, former teams, teammates, and fans alike showed their love for Gordo and his trademark late-game heroics on social media. Take a look at some select posts below:
