Football: Kubo nets Sociedad’s 1st goal of season in draw with Girona
Takefusa Kubo scored Real Sociedad’s first goal of the Spanish La Liga season on Saturday, netting early in their 1-1 draw against visiting Girona.
Looking to improve on a fourth-place finish last season, the hosts made a bright start to their campaign in front of 30,848 at Reale Arena when Kubo fired them into the lead in the fifth minute.
The 22-year-old Japan attacker gave Girona goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga no chance with a first-time shot after Aihen Munoz’s cross found him unmarked in the middle of the area.
