VIDEO: Iniesta Scores World Class First Goal For New Club
Andres Iniesta left the Camp Nou after a stunning career for Japan, linking up with Vissel Kobe on a three-year deal, a move which surprised many especially as he’d been mentioned as a potential signing for Manchester City.
But today the gifted midfielder showed he has lost none of his magic as he scored a fantastic solo goal in a J1 League clash against Jubilo Iwata.
Picking the ball up in the centre-circle against Jubilo Iwata, the 34-year-old ghosted into the box, before leaving his marker on his backside with a drag-back and slotting home.
Assisting Iniesta was ex-Germany forward and fellow World Cup winner Lukas Podolski.
Since the ex Barca and Spain midfielder’s debut in a 3-0 defeat to Shonan Bellmare on July 22, Vissel have won, drawn and lost each of their three matches.
Fernando Torres has the same record after four games with Sagan Tosu, who remain in the J1 League’s relegation zone.
He began the play in midfield before getting a perfect pass from Podolski, rounding off both the opponent’s defender and goalkeeper to score a breathtaking goal!
