Kashima snap up Brazilian striker

Young Brazilian forward Igor Torres Satori, son of prolific former J.League star Alcindo, has signed for Kashima Antlers, club officials said on Thursday.

It is the 18-year-old's first professional contract after playing for Centro de Futebal Zico Sociedade Esportiva, in Brazil, as an amateur.

Alcindo helped Kashima win the first stage of the inaugural 1993 season and scored 50 goals in 71 games for Kashima. He netted 79 goals in 125 games in Japan overall, leaving Kashima after two seasons.

Kashima finished fourth in the J.League last season but qualified for the AFC Champions League by winning the Emperor's Cup.
