Josh Kennedy continued his successful return from a few weeks out with a back injury by scoring again for Nagoya Grampus.

The Australian international netted in the 12th minute of the away clash with Urawa Reds to take his tally to five in seven games, but it took just two minutes into the second half for the home side to equalise when young midfielder Yosuke Kashiwagi hit the target.

Eight minutes later, teenager Genki Haraguchi scored for Urawa who managed to maintain that scoreline and move to fourth on the table.

Kennedy’s fellow Socceroo, Matthew Spiranovic, came on as a last-minute sub for Reds goalscorer Kashiwagi.
