PLAYER PROFILE - Takuya IWATA

Takuya Iwata started life at Kiwitea Street with Central United in 2011 as a striker following a goal-laden season in Queensland football before trying his luck with Auckland City FC.

Iwata, like many players before him at the club, was converted from an attacking player into a defender where the focus on possession football and getting forward to help the attack at the right times brought the best out of him.

Iwata has started every FIFA Club World Cup game for the club since 2012, seven matches in total, but rates one of his most unique experiences as facing the Japan national team at Cessnock, New South Wales, for the Navy Blues on January 4, 2015.

His favourite player of all time is former AC Milan and Italy legend Paolo Maldini.
