The 49 year-old inspired an incredible comeback, scoring Yokohama FC's first goal as they came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Cerezo Osaka in their J. League 2 clash. 

Kazu showed no signs of his age as he struck a right-foot volley across the goalkeeper and sprinted away in celebration.

It took the striker just five minutes on the pitch to score after being introduced in the 69th minute before finding the back of the net in the 74th.

It's Kazu's second goal this season in 14 appearances.

The Japanese striker holds the record for most goals with the national team, 55, and it's his 30th year as a professional footballer.

Ibba and Tomoya Uchida scored the other two goals for Yokohama after Kenyu Sugimoto and Kazuya Yamamura had put Cerezo ahead.
