Josh Kennedy scored on his J-League debut with new club Nagoya Grampus. The Australian international scored in the 42nd minute to give his side the lead before Paulinho pulled one back from the spot for Kyoto Sanga to cause a 1-1 draw.

It was an important point for Dragan Stojkovic's side as they had won just one of their previous nine league matches.

The goal is sure to give Kennedy, who as on the outer at German club Karlsruhe last season, an enormous amount of confidence going forward.
