Midfielder Shoya Nakajima scored two goals in the space of seven minutes in his home debut for Portuguese side Portimonense on Monday, contributing to a 2-1 victory over Feirense.

Nakajima, who moved from FC Tokyo to Portimonense last month on a loan deal, scored in the 12th and 19th minutes with either foot to help the newly promoted Algarve-based club move from the penultimate spot on the 18-team Portuguese top flight league table to 13th place.
