Alessandro Santos
Club:Shimizu S Pulse
Position:Midfielder

Brazilian-born, the midfielder known as Alex only took Japanese nationality last November and had to wait until March for his debut.

At home on the left flank, Alex's skills on the ball have never been in doubt.

But he had to overcome questions about his abilities as a team player before booking his place in the Japan squad.

Philippe Troussier gave him a chance to show what he could do and he responded by showing he is more than just a talented individual.
