Brazilian football team Botafogo has just signed Japanese veteran midfielder Keisuke Honda – and to give him a proper welcome, it has created a special video based on the opening to the original Pokémon games on the Game Boy.

In case you didn't know, Honda has 90 caps for the Japanese national side to his name, and is perhaps most famous for playing for Italian Serie A side AC Milan during the 2015-2016 season. Since then, he has played for Pachuca, Melbourne Victory and Vitesse Arnhem.

He began his career in 2005 with the Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight (fans of former England striker Gary Lineker might recall that name) and has also played for VVV-Venlo and CSKA Moscow during his time in the sport.

Thanks to Nakamuramartin for the heads up!
