One of the most technically gifted players in our team, Mana is simply a joy to watch when she’s in full flow.
Standing at just 5ft 1in tall, Mana is the smallest player in our team, but makes up for it with her close control, creativity and eye for a pass. Mana likes to play football ‘the Arsenal way’ too, always keeping the ball on the ground and looking to play quick one-twos with her teammates.
Mana won the World Cup with Japan in 2011 at just 18 years of age and has now received more than 80 caps. She won Asian Young Footballer of the Year in 2008 and 2009 and was named MVP in the 2018 Asian Cup.
On January 2023 she joined Tottenham Hotspur on loan for the remainder of the season.
