One of his position’s rising stars, 23-year-old Kosuke Nakamura is already beginning to make an impression with Japan’s senior side. A graduate of the country’s youth ranks who impressed at various age levels, the Kashiwa Reysol No1 came to prominence in 2016, when he kept goal for the Samurai Blue at the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016. 

Outings in friendlies and last year’s East Asian Football Championship have followed, with Nakamura seen by many as the natural successor to long-standing first-choice Eiji Kawashima.
