Toshinobu Katsuya (勝矢 寿延 Katsuya Toshinobu ?, born September 2, 1961 in Nagasaki) is a former Japanese football player. He was a defender.

Career[edit]

He was educated at and played for Shimabara Commerce High School and Osaka University of Commerce. After graduating in 1984, he joined Japan Soccer League side Honda Motor F.C. but moved to fellow JSL side Nissan Motor F.C. (current Yokohama F. Marinos) in 1991. He was transferred to Jubilo Iwata in 1994, then to Cerezo Osaka in 1998, and retired from the game at the end of the 1998 season.

Katsuya was capped 27 times for the Japanese national team between 1985 and 1993,[1] and was a member of the Japan team that won the 1992 AFC Asian Cup. He played 3 matches in the competition.

He also represented Japan in the 1989 FIFA Futsal World Championship finals hosted by the Netherlands.

He filled in for injured left back Satoshi Tsunami in the final qualifying stage of the AFC for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. He was on the pitch when Japan's hope to play in the finals was dashed by an injury-time Iraqi equaliser in the last qualifier, the match that the Japanese fans now refer to as the Agony of Doha.

Katsuya works at Cerezo Osaka as a coach.
