Real Madrid youngster Takefusa Kubo scored a remarkable goal while on international duty after seeing his strike nutmeg four opponents before hitting the back of the net.

The 20-year-old was away on international duty with Japan U-24s a fortnight ago and produced a goal that justified his nickname of the 'Japanese Messi'.

With the scores level in a friendly match versus Jamaica, Kubo cut in from the right wing and unleashed a powerful drive that went through the legs of four players, including the goalkeeper, before crossing the line.

His team would go on to win 4-0, with further goals from Wataru Endo, Ayase Ueda and Ritsu Doan.

Kubo signed for Madrid in 2019 from Japanese side FC Tokyo, joining the Spanish giants on a five-year deal.

But he is yet to make his mark within the first-team and has not made a single competitive appearance for the club.

The talented youngster has spent the last two seasons gaining experience in La Liga, having spent time at Mallorca, Villarreal and Getafe.

He made 35 league appearances for Mallorca during his first loan spell, scoring four times in the process.

Do you see Kubo becoming a future star for Real Madrid? Comment below.

Last season saw Kubo join Villarreal until the end of 2020/21, though this was cut short and he instead agreed a move to Getafe in January for the remainder of the campaign.

Kubo is under contract at Real Madrid until 2024 and his future at the club will now be decided by new manager Carlo Ancelotti, who re-joined the Spanish giants earlier this month after leaving his role at Everton.
