Masashi Oguro (大黒 将志, Ōguro Masashi, born 4 May 1980) is a Japanese footballer who, in the 2018 season will play for J2 League side Tochigi SC as a striker.[2]

Club career[edit]

Oguro joined the J-league in 1999, with Gamba Osaka. He was loaned to Consadole Sapporo for the 2001 season, and returned to Gamba having impressed many[who?] in Osaka.

In 2004, Oguro scored the second-highest number of goals in the J-league, and the highest number of all Japanese-born players. In Chinese characters, Oguro's name resembles that of the god Daikokuten, giving him that nickname. Gamba Osaka's official merchandise store has come to be called the Shrine of Daikokuten.[citation needed]

In 2005, Oguro was the 6th top J-league scorer, and helped lead Gamba Osaka to the J-league championship.

In December 2005, Oguro was signed by French club Grenoble Foot 38, where he appeared in 17 Ligue 2 matches.[3]

In August 2006, Oguro was transferred to Italian club Torino.[4]

In June 2008, Oguro moved to J. League side Tokyo Verdy.[5]

He moved to Yokohama F.C. in January 2010 on a loan deal.

Oguro transferred to Yokohama F. Marinos in 2011.

On 4 February 2013, Oguro was loaned to Chinese Super League side Hangzhou Greentown for the 2013 season, and rejoined manager Takeshi Okada, whom he played under at Consadole Sapporo and Japan national team.[6]

International career[edit]

Oguro was chosen for the Japanese national team in 2005 for the 2006 World Cup qualifying games. During his second game for the team on 9 February, Oguro scored the second goal in injury time to help Japan to a 2–0 win over North Korea in the final game of Asian qualification.[1]

In 2005, Oguro was the 5th top scorer for the Japanese national team.[citation needed]
