Takumi Minamino (南野 拓実, Minamino Takumi, born 16 January 1995) is a Japanese football player who plays as a winger for Austrian club FC Red Bull Salzburg.

Club career[edit]

Minamino made 62 J1 League appearances for Cerezo Osaka, playing alongside Diego Forlán, but the team were relegated in his final season. FC Red Bull Salzburg tracked him for a year and a half before signing him on 7 January 2015, on a contract running until 2018 with the option of a further year.[1]

He made his European debut on 26 February, playing the first half of a 1–3 home defeat (2–5 aggregate) to Villarreal in the second leg of the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League before being replaced by Felipe Pires.[2]

During the 2017-18 season Salzburg had their best ever European campaign. They finished top of their Europa League group, for a record fourth time, before beating Real Sociedad and Borussia Dortmund thus making their first ever appearance in the UEFA Europa League semi-final.[3] On 3 May 2018, he played in the Europa League semi-finals as Olympique de Marseille played out a 1–2 away loss but a 3–2 aggregate win to secure a place in the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final[4] On November 8, 2018, Minamino had his first-half Hat-trick in a 5–2 victory over Rosenborg in a 2018–19 UEFA Europa League Group B match.[5][6]

National team career[edit]

In June 2011, Minamino was elected Japan U-17 national team for 2011 U-17 World Cup. He played 4 matches and scored a goal against New Zealand.

Minamino made his debut for Japan national team in a friendly against Iran on 13 October 2015, coming as a substitute in 83rd minute.[7]

In August 2016, Minamino was elected Japan U-23 national team for 2016 Summer Olympics. He played all 3 matches and scored a goal against Nigeria.

In December 2018, Minamino was one of 23 Japanese selected in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.[8] In January 2019, he made his Asian Cup debut against Turkmenistan, providing an assist. In the semi final, Minamino was Japan's star as he assisted twice and won his team a penalty, which was converted by Yuya Osako. He scored his first ever Asian Cup goal in the final against Qatar, but ended up losing 3-1. Minamino made a total of 6 appearances in the tournament.
