Marcus Tulio Tanaka -Urawa Reds
The Brazilian defender plays very aggressively both at the back and in attack. Physically strong enough to stop most opponents, he is a real rock. He came to Japan form Brazil when he was a high school student. In 2003, he was naturalised as a Japanese citizen this year and he joined Urawa Reds in 2004.

Soon he became an important player for Urawa and won the J-league in 2006, and was named J-league MVP, and Asian Champions League in 2007. At times, he has played in midfield.
