Cape Town - Kazuyoshi Miura became professional soccer's oldest goalscorer at the age of 50 when he struck the winner for his side in a 1-0 win on Sunday.
Miura who plays for second division side, Yokohama FC, in Japan struck the only goal of the game in a win over Thespa Kusatsu and was delighted after the game to still be making a contribution.
"I'm glad to contribute to a win,' Miura said. "I'm always looking to score but had a good feeling about today's game."
Miura broke former England International, Sir Stanley Mathews' long-standing record by two days after turning 50 on February 26 and made his appearance on Sunday at 50 years and 14 days old.
Miura, who made his professional debut in 1986 is playing in his 32nd professional season, having previously played for Brazil's Santos and Italy's Genoa while representing Japan 89 times, scoring 55 goals.
