77 Colorado Rapids away Kosuke Kimura #27 科羅拉多急流 作客 木村光佑 #27 2008

若不是早前外流巴西的祖國球員陳志釗,在2012年為前世冠球會盃得主班霸哥連泰斯助攻了一個入球,差點忘記了亦有一位屬於亞洲的日本人於美國大聯盟MLS效力,他名字是木村光佑,生於日本神戶。

踏入2013年,轉會至星光煜煜的紐約紅牛的木村(不知兵工廠帝王退役前有否教他两三招?) ,已於2010隨科羅拉多急流奪得MLS總冠軍,雖獎盃成分相比歐洲或南美那些頂級聯賽較次了一至兩個等級,但亦不能抹殺KIMURA的汗水及努力,Beckham也幾經艱辛才奪下大聯盟盾獎牌。

灰色偏白的波衫是較少球會採用,而心口廣告的贊助費可能太” 削” ,不如用回自己球隊名吧。木村光佑暫未被國家隊領隊徵召為國腳,希望紅牛的名氣能令木村人氣急升,身為後防的他已熟悉美洲足球球隊隊型,望能令日本國家隊在未來帶來一點幫助。

Kosuke Kimura

Kosuke Kimura (木村光佑 Kimura Kōsuke?) (born May 14, 1984 in Kobe) is a Japanese footballer who currently plays for New York Red Bulls in Major League Soccer.
He was the first player in the league's history who was born in Japan.[1] He was a starting defender for the Rapids in its run to the MLS Cup Championship in 2010.

((College and amateur))

Kimura's career in organized soccer began with the youth team of Kawasaki Frontale. By the age of 15, he played for the Kawasaki Frontale reserve team. A foot injury at age of 17 hampered his opportunity to sign a professional contract with the club.[2] Despite this, he would eventually earn an athletic scholarship to play college soccer at Western Illinois University after moving to the United States, where he took an intensive English-language course and the SAT, on which he achieved a near-perfect score on its mathematics section.[1] A four-year letterman with the Leathernecks from 2003 to 2006,[3] he also played with the Thunder Bay Chill of the USL Premier Development League.[4]


((Professional))
Kimura was drafted by Colorado Rapids in the 2007 MLS Supplemental Draft,[5] and in doing so became first Japanese-born player in the history of Major League Soccer.[6] He was a bit-part player for much of his first two seasons, playing four games in his rookie season, and featuring in 18 games in 2008, 17 as a starter. He scored his first career goal on May 2, 2009, in a game against Real Salt Lake.[7] On November 13, 2010, he scored the game-winning goal against San Jose that sent the Colorado Rapids to MLS Cup 2010. On November 21, 2010, Kimura played for a full 90 minutes (plus 30 minutes of extra time) to help the Colorado Rapids capture the MLS Cup against FC Dallas with a 2-1 victory in Toronto, Ontario. While with Colorado Kimura appeared in 117 league matches and scored 4 goals.

Kimura was traded to Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money and an international roster slot on July 5, 2012.[8] Five months later, Kimura was traded to New York Red Bulls along with a second-round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft in exchange for Home Grown Player rights to Bryan Gallego and allocation money.[9]
