Takefusa Kubo continued to impress Zinedine Zidane and fans alike on Wednesday after his stunning cameo in Real Madrid's victory over Fenerbahce.
The Japanese sensation only played 17 minutes against Fenerbahce, but he made a brilliant impression.

Despite Karim Benzema's hat-trick, Kubo was voted Real Madrid's player of the match by fans.
Speaking after Real Madrid's 5-3 pre-season victory, Zidane called for patience and insists Kubo is a player for the future.

"There are many players who have come on pre-season with us from the youth system," he said.
"Kubo has joined us recently and he is a player for the future, but we will talk about what is best with him and it could be good that he trains with us and plays for the Castilla, we will see.
"He is still very young, and we must be patient with his development."
Kubo, who enjoyed four years at Barcelona's famed youth academy La Masia before returning to Japan, was snapped up by Real Madrid in a deal worth a reported £1.78 million.
And after making his debut, he was hailed by Spanish media with Marca describing the signing of the 18-year-old as a "masterstroke".
Kubo's slated to feature for Real Madrid's Castilla side next season, but he could find himself lining up in Zidane's first-team much sooner than expected following his impressive showings.
