The J-League side went in front against Jubilo Iwata when Lukas Podolski and the former Barcelona midfielder combined for a fine effort

Andres Iniesta scored his first Vissel Kobe goal in wonderful fashion against Jubilo Iwata in the J.League on Saturday.

The 34-year-old midfield maestro, who showed he still possesses quality of the highest order, was making just his third appearance since joining from Barcelona in May.

Iniesta took Lukas Podolski's pass on the turn and span away from Kentaro Oi with a majestic, fluid first touch.

The World Cup winner then nudged the ball away from the onrushing Jubilo goalkeeper Krzysztof Kaminski and fired inside the near post to put Kobe 1-0 up in the 15th minute.
