Video: Shunsuke Nakamura Proves He's Still Got It, Scores Vintage 94th Minute Free-Kick

Shunsuke Nakamura is a Celtic hero.

When the Japanese midfielder arrived in Glasgow, he quickly earned the eternal love of Celtic fans by curling in some of the most technically perfect free kicks the World has ever seen.

Well things haven't changed much for Shunsuke, despite returning to Japan where he is still playing aged 37. With his Yokohama F Marinos side trailing 2-1 in the 94th minute, there was only one player going to take this free kick, and you can guess the rest.

Perfection.

And not for the first time. Nakamura's free kicks are the stuff of legend, with perhaps his best work coming against Manchester United in the Champions League group stages, when he left Edwin Van Der Sar without a hope.

Keep on curling them in Shunsuke!
