OKUBO WANTS JAPAN'S NATIONAL TEAM ACTION

Veteran Japanese striker, Yoshito Okubo, scored two goals in making a record 161 career goals.

The goals came in a 4-2 win over FC Tokyo by first-place Kawasaki Frontale. The goals helped the striker rewrite the J-League record books.

The 33-year-old Okubo has now scored five goals in seven games, and has caught the attention of Japan national team coach Vahid Halilhodzic. The forward even with his age and injury worries wants to return to the Japanese national team squad.
