They got the better of Iran's Persepolis at home with a brilliant performance and the key player behind that was their Brazilian star Serginho. He scored a goal and was generally a thorn in the Iran side's defence.
He scored a deft finish past Alireza Beiranvand with twenty minutes remaining at Kashima Soccer Stadium.
Serginho also record two shots on goal and completed 34 passes.
He was simply sensational on the night for Kashima and is aptly named this week's Toyota Asian Player of the Week!
