OITA (Kyodo) Former Japan striker Kazuyoshi Miura rewrote his own record as the oldest player to score in the second division when he netted his third goal of the season in FC Yokohama’s 2-2 draw against Oita Trinita on Saturday.

Miura, whose goalscoring exploits during his heyday earned him the nickname “King Kazu,” set a new mark at 43 years, 9 months and 8 days with a spot-on shot in the 50th minute to level the score at 1-all in the final match of the season.
