Nagoya Grampus striker Josh Kennedy scored his fifth J-League goal in just his ninth appearance on the weekend.

The Australian international netted Nagoya's first goal in the 7th minute of their huge 4-1 away win over league leaders Kashima Antlers.

Kennedy has begun his career in Japan in brilliant fashion, helping Grampus to wins in five of their past six outings, climbing to seventh on the J-League table in the process.
