The 29-year-old forward opened the scoring as Japan were 5-0 winners over Afghanistan
Shinji Okazaki has featured heavily for Leicester City this season and he has also been producing the goods for his country.
The 29-year-old forward opened the scoring as Japan were 5-0 winners over Afghanistan in World Cup qualifying.
Shortly before the break, Okazaki received the ball on the edge of the box and, in almost one touch, he drags the ball back before nutmegging his opponent. That allowed him the space to finish low past the goalkeeper shortly before the break.

Southampton’s Maya Yoshida was also on the score sheet.
