Japanese soccer star Shinji Ono had a hand in two goals as Feyenoord moved within a point of second-paced PSV Eindhoven after a comfortable 3-0 win over Roda JC in the Dutch first division on Sunday.
The home side took the lead after 17 minutes when Thomas Buffel finished from close range after Ono’s cross and Dirk Kuijt extended the lead from the penalty spot shortly before the hour mark.
Ono, playing in his third match since recovering from an ankle injury, was again involved in the third, his clever pass finding Ebi Smolarek, who buried a superb shot to seal the win.
