As far as first goals go, Andres Iniesta’s for Vissel Kobe was certainly up there.
Picking the ball up in the centre-circle against Jubilo Iwata, Iniesta ghosted into the box, before leaving his marker on his backside with a drag-back and slotting home.
Assisting the former Barcelona and Spain midfielder was ex-Germany forward and fellow World Cup winner Lukas Podolski.
Since the 34-year-old’s debut in a 3-0 defeat to Shonan Bellmare on July 22, Vissel have won, drawn and lost each of their three games.
Fernando Torres has the same record after four matches with Sagan Tosu, who remain in the J1 League’s relegation zone.
