Honda in the history books
Honda joined Botafogo in January after a brief spell at Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie, where he combined his duties as the manager of Cambodia with the continuation of his eclectic playing career. Following an issue with his registration in Brazil and a dose of the flu, Honda finally debuted for O Glorioso against Bangú and found himself on the score sheet after converting a penalty in the first half to make a bit of history as the first player to find the net in a professional club football game on five separate continents.
