Hiroki also participates in the Japanese national team. He is not yet to score any goal but he has made a total of 12 appearances. Hiroki is only 23 years of age and he is the pillar for the Japanese football and the Japanese national team. With a player like him, something productive is expected. Joining Hannover 96 from Kashiwa Reysol is a huge advancement for the Japanese youngster. This will give him a lot of experience which in turn will contribute to the Japanese national team.

Before playing for the senor team, Hiroki played for the Japan U-23 a total of 17 games and won 2 goals. In 2011 he won the J-League best 11 award. Hope he will follow the successes of Hidetoshi Nakata and Shunsuke Nakamura.
