The young striker has declared that he will never give up trying to score from the first minute to the last and such spirit has earned him the nickname 'Samurai'.

In 2009, he scored 15 goals in 16 national team games. Okazaki likes to get behind the defence with his speed and his goals have given him confidence to take on the strongest backlines.
