This summer, Shoya Nakajima joined Turkish club Antalyaspor from FC Porto. Facing Adana Demispor, the Japanese player entered the game for the first time at home. His family was present in the stands to support him, smartphone in hand. An entry into the game, however short-lived.
Shoya Nakajima entered the game in the 58th while his team was trailing. The Japanese, who was pressing heavily against the opposing team, violently tackled an Adana Demispor player. The referee first showed a yellow card before finally excluding Nakakjima after consulting the VAR.
Antalyaspor eventually lost 3-0 at home.
