Andreas Iniesta has dazzled fans with a sublime piece of skill to score a his first goal in the Japanese league.

The 34-year-old made a darting diagonal run to the edge of the penalty area, and following a perfect pass from Podolski, he produced a classy touch to turn the defender.

The quick touch and drag turned the Jubilo Iwata defender inside-out, and left Iniesta one-on-one with the goalkeeper.


Instead of taking the shot immediately, he produced a further moment of magic by fooling the goalkeeper and taking it around him – leaving just the net in his sights.

The superb goal certainly showed that Iniesta hasn’t skipped a beat since his big-money move to Japan.


Vissel Kobe went on to win the match 2-1 over Jubilo Iwata in the J League fixture.
