Kashima Antlers blanked FC Tokyo 2-0 to take pole position in the J. League first division on Saturday after the Yokohama F Marinos were handed their first defeat of the season after going down 3-1 at JEF United Ichihara.

Brazilian midfielder Fernando put Kashima on the road to victory after six minutes and compatriot Euller finished the job in the dying stages as Kashima took over at the top from Yokohama, which was sunk by a hat-trick from South Korea striker Choi Yong Soo.
