Today he made his Serie A debut with Catania at just 18 years of age and scored the equalizer against Atlanta.
He is a new Japanese star.:) :pp

I was just about to post something about this. Amazing story when you think about it. He's the youngest ever scorer in the J-league aswell at 15.

He's talented, no doubt about it but still really young.

This is a great clip. It's on Catania's home page. Take a look if you have a chance :proud:

He will be away from the field for 6 months because of a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. :cry: :cry:

I'm soo gutted.
He was starting to get playing time regularly at first team. :frownani:
Hope he will recover soon...

He scored and assisted on the opening day of the season [in Catania's 2-2 draw against Parma]. :) He has something, scores on his debut and scores after returning from a serious injury. Of course it's early days, but Italy seems a good place to be for Japanese footballers.

And here you can be privy to his contributions. My thanks to MondoCatania for the uploading job.
