Some of the skills of the athletes on the sporting field make spectators take notice and go wow. Another such video is going viral on the internet and it features Takefusa Kubo who plays as a winger for Spanish club Getafe on loan from Real Madrid. However, the goal whose video is going viral is from his stint for the Japan national team.
The 20-year-old’s quadruple-nutmeg strike was in fact the first of the four of Japan’s U-23 goal against Jamaica in Tokyo earlier this month. His efforts just after the half-hour’s mark opened the floodgates with the likes of Wataru Endo, Ayase Ueda and Ritsu Doan chipping in with a goal each and completing the win.
Check out the video here:
Kubo was quick to latch on to a long throw and shimmied inside onto his left foot before going past his marker and playing a powerful low strike. Although there was an attempt to tackle that shot, the defender got beaten and the shot bisected the legs of two more defenders as well as the goalkeeper Dillon Barnes, who was playing his first game for Jamaica.
The young striker Kubo signed for Real Madrid from Japanese club FC Tokyo on a five-year deal in 2019. However, he has further been loaned to Getafe and is yet to play a game for the Real Madrid senior team. Given his ability on the football pitch though, who knows perhaps he can make a name for himself in European football.
