Kazuyoshi Miura broke his record as the J. League’s oldest scorer on Sunday in stunning fashion, belting home an unstoppable effort from inside the box to kick start Yokohama FC’s 3-2 comeback win at Cerezo Osaka in their second-division game.

The 49-year-old came on in the 69th minute and got on the scoresheet just six minutes later, showing his trademark stopovers to loft in a cross from the left before chesting down a headed clearance in the box and making space for himself to unleash a low curler into the far right corner that left the ‘keeper stranded.
