Kubo Takefusa, dubbed the 'Japanese Messi', inspired Japan U24s to a 4-0 thumping against Jamaica on Saturday.

The 20-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Spanish side Getafe from Real Madrid, bagged the opening goal of the game in some style.

Cutting in from the right-wing, he unleashed a powerful shot on his favoured left foot that went through the legs of FOUR Jamaican players - including the goalkeeper - before nestling in the bottom corner of the goal.

No wonder he is considered Japan's big hope at the Olympic football tournament this summer.

The Japanese side have drawn in Group A, where they will face South Africa, Mexico and France.

Goals from Endo Wataru, Ueda Ayase and Doan Ritsu sealed a convincing win for Japan, but Kubo's spectacular effort will take centre stage.

Kubo will return to Real Madrid next season in what he hopes to finally be his breakout season under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
