Kazuyoshi Miura sets new mark as 50-year-old goalscorer
Kazuyoshi Miura has become professional football’s oldest goalscorer at the age of 50 years and 14 days.
The former Japan striker scored the winner in Yokohama’s 1-0 defeat of Thespa Kusatsu in the second division of the J-League.
Miura is already professional football’s oldest known player having beaten Stanley Matthews’ record earlier this month.
“I’m glad to contribute to a win,” said Miura, who is in his 32nd season and spent time in Brazil earlier in his career. “I’m always looking to score but had a good feeling about today’s game.”
