If Saturday turns out to have been Takefusa Kubo's last game for FC Tokyo, no one can accuse him of failing to make the most of it.

The 17-year-old helped set up Kento Hashimoto's opener before netting what turned out to be decider on a skillful counterattack and racking up a second for good measure in FC Tokyo's 3-1 win over Oita Trinita.

Trinita, which began the game in fifth place, has had a remarkable start to this year's campaign thanks to a rock-solid back line and the scoring efforts of forward Noriaki Fujimoto.
