Name: Tomokazu Nagira 中島 崇典

Position : Centre back

DOB : 17 Oct 1985

Height : 1.78m

Weight : 74kg

Nickname : Nagi

Having picked up U-20 caps for Japan, Nagira hasn’t really progressed into the player he could have as a full age player.

He is an aggressive, tough tackling centre-back, but doesn’t really have the mobility to deal with fast strikers nor the physique to deal with tall target man strikers.

Had 7 seasons at Avispa but saw his opportunities limited in 2010 as Daiki and Makoto remained solid, with Miyaji being seen as an alternative backup central defender. When he did get chances he looked short on match fitness and cramped up after 70-80 minutes in each of his games.

Probably unlucky to be released he was quickly picked up by FC Tokyo and will probably enjoy another promotion season as a backup defender.
