Kazuyoshi Miura becomes the oldest player to appear in J-League

Kazuyoshi Miura becomes the oldest player to appear in J-League. He made professional debut for Brazilian club Santos 37 years ago.

Thirty four years after making his professional debut, Japanese forward Kazuyoshi Miura became the oldest player to appear in a J-League first division match when he led Yokohama FC on Wednesday at the age of 53.

The player known as ‘King Kazu’, who started his career in Brazil in 1986 because Japan did not have a professional league for him to play in, was given the captain’s armband, but he could not inspire his team who lost 3-2 to league leaders Kawasaki Frontale.

Miura, who scored 55 goals in 89 appearances for Japan and played his last international in 2000, broke the record set by forward Masashi Nakayama, who was 45 years old when he played for Consadole Sapporo in 2012.
