Ryo Miyaichi scores on his Feyenoord home debut

New, comments

Recent Arsenal signee Ryo Miyaichi has scored in his first home match for Feyenoord Rotterdam today against Heracles Almelo. Young Guns has the report on Ryo's play today:

Indeed, minutes later, Feyenoord had opened the scoring. Diego Biseswar skipped away down the wing, he looked up, spotted Miyaichi and picked him out. Ryo chested the ball down, shifted possession from his right foot to his left, and drilled home. It was a super goal, showing a number of his qualities.

Ryo, of course, has come out of nowhere recently--rumors swirled around him since the start of the year, but the Japanese high schooler has flown mostly under the radar. That's probably all over now.

He should have had a second moments after. He accelerated away from two Heracles players on the wing, then beat another with some step overs, before unleashing a 20 yard pile driver, just tipped over. As half time approached, he did a similar thing again, but instead of shooting, he crossed. The ball worked its way out to the edge of the box to Biseswar. He cut inside and curled home number two.

Half time arrived with chants of "Ryo, Ryo, Ryo" echoing all over the De Kuip stadium.

Here's the video of his effort (h/t to Young Guns):
