Takefusa Kubo scored the goal of the match when he sent the ball through the legs of three defenders and the goalkeeper as Japan U24s defeated the Jamaican senior side at the Tokyo Stadium.
In a perhaps never-ever-seen-before moment in football, the 20-year-old winger stormed the Jamaican box from the right before firing a shot that nutmegged 4 players to put his side ahead in the game.
The Real Madrid player had endured a tough 20/21 season on loan at Villarreal and Getafe but would be looking to put the demons of the past season behind when he dons the national team’s shirt in the upcoming Olympics.
Now, scoring a goal by nutmegging the goalkeeper happens from time to time. Nutmegging a goalie and a defender before a goal is a tough cookie. Very few can even think of making a tunnel through the legs of two defenders and the goalkeeper to score a goal.
