Name : Hideya Okamoto 岡本 英也

Position : Striker/Midfielder

DOB : 18 May 1987

Height : 1.83m

Weight : 70kg

Nickname : Hideya

A young striker used mostly as a substitute he has come to Avispa Fukuoka as a promising young talent from Gamba Osaka.

He doesn’t do quite enough for a starting place in the team, but is versatile enough that he is often a first choice substitute for any of the front 5 positions.

I met him in 7-11 once and he is a lot taller than he seems and will hopefully bulk up a bit as he is good on his feet and could become a very good complete striker.

Top scored for Avispa in their return to J1, and was probably the Avispa player who acquitted themselves best in the top division. Got a transfer to Kashima Antlers as a result of this.
He may well do alright at Kashima as he has a good willingness to shoot, and ability to get shots on target. At Avispa he was too much of a luxury at times as he doesn’t help midfield much and we were in a fight against better teams and relegation.
