Spain legends Fernando Torres and Andres Iniesta didn’t have the kind of J-League debut they would have liked, as both stars’ team lost.
Former Atletico Madrid and Liverpool striker Torres’ Sagan Tosu side were defeated 1-0 by Vegalta Sendai after conceding an 87th minute goal. The forward himself had a header saved.
Meanwhile, former Barcelona maestro Iniesta came on as a substitute for his new side, Vissel Kobe, with 32 minutes to go, but couldn’t help his team from losing 3-0 to Shonan Bellmare.
Here, we take a look at some of the best images from both the Spaniards’ first J-League outing.
