Australian international Josh Kennedy was on target with a double for Nagoya Grampus on Wednesday.

The Socceroos striker scored his side's second and third goals in the 4-0 home win over Albirex Niigata, hitting the target in the 37th and 83rd minutes, to help send last season's champions to seventh.

Kennedy netted the first from a tap-in before heading home from a corner in customary fashion later on, taking his season tally to four from six outings.
