The full-back is not tall but is physically strong. Nagatomo was discovered by F.C. Tokyo when he had a training match as a member of Meiji University Soccer Club. He is very tough fullback and goes up and down the line for 90 minutes. The 23-year-old has been recently linked with a move to Serie A and is able to play on the left and right.

Nagatomo impressed against the Ivory Coast on his international debut. Perhaps he could improve his link play with midfielders but he has a bright future.
