Watch: Yokohama FC ace at 53 - see Kazu Miura star for Coritiba in 1989

Kazu Miura turns 54 later this month and remains a frontliner in the J-League with Yokohama FC.

The former Japan captain started against Kawasaki Frontale back in September and in doing so became the oldest player to take to the pitch in a J1 League match and the oldest player ever in a football match in the highest national division worldwide. Formerly of Genoa and Dinamo Zagreb in Europe, Kazu had several years in Brazil, playing for Palmeiras, Santos and Coritiba. Here we have highlights of Kazu's 1989/90 campaign with Coritiba.

Kazu played more than 50 matches and lifted the 1989 State Championship trophy.
