We admit that there really is very little in comparison to former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes and the Kashimar Antlers right-back Daigo Nishi. They couldn’t look more different in appearance, Nishi doesn’t have 11 Premier League medals, and his favourite biscuit probably isn’t a custard cream.
However both of them can hit an absolute thunderbast**d of a volley. Daigo Nishi did just that last night as his side romped to a 5-1 victory over Sanfrece Hiroshima. It was an absolute peach of a strike and has drawn plenty of comparisons to Paul Scholes’ effort against Bradford City in March 2000.
If you’re on your way out to play some Sunday League, or are playing a bit of astro-league this week, the gauntlet has been set.
