Tamada is speedy and a great dribbler. When he is fit and feeling good, he can really shine. The Nagoya man doesn’t play just in front of the goal but drops deep. As a result, his goal tally has only reached double digits twice in his career but there is more to his game than scoring. He creates for others, especially by cutting in from the left.

He scored against Brazil at the 2006 World Cup, but after the tournament he was left out by Ivica Osim. However, now he is back and often features in attack.
