Shibasaki makes history with goal vs Barcelona

Gabu Shibasaki makes history with golazo against Barcelona

September 16, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
Even though Takashi Inui was the first Japanese player to score against Barcelona, 'Gabu's goal had a special meaning.

Playing against Real Madrid and Barcelona is the dream of most Japanese players. But scoring goals against both of them is something not everyone can brag about.

Earlier today, Gabu Shibasaki made that dream come true, as he scored a thunder of a volley against Barcelona. Shibasaki's opening goal was later cancelled by Denis Suárez, but his legendary shot caused some ripples on social media, making him a trending topic.

If you missed it, this is your chance to watch it (Image may be geo-restricted).

As we said earlier, Shibasaki became the first Japanese player to score against the two most popular teams in the world in competitive games, scoring a brace against Los Blancos while playing for Kashima Antlers and adding one more against Los Blaugranas today.

Curiously enough, the three most recent goals conceded by Barcelona in La Liga matches have been scored by Japanese players. Since this was the first goal allowed by Los Blaugranas this season, as Takashi Inui scored a brace during Matchday 38 of the 2016-17 season for Eibar.
