Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino helped Japan overcome Tajikistan on Monday afternoon.
The Samurai Blue were in World Cup qualifier action as they dispatched their opponents with relative ease, registering a 4-1 score-line.
Minamino finished off a close-range effort after some lovely build-up play by his team-mates down the right flank.
It takes the Liverpool star to 16 international goals, and remarkably four in four for 2021 after a difficult 2020.
