Yes Hi F.C. full of only a few people I actually know!!!

Most of the people I know are like ridiculously well known players and I feel cheap using them so let's see how this horrible mess of players do.  By the end of this world cup I'll know who they are.

daisuke matsui isn't anyone, that's just a combination of Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Matsui, two of the most famous Japanese ball players

Hahaha, if only.

Here's a description of him:

Quote
This irrepressible little artist can play on the left-wing or as a central playmaker and started his career at Japanese club Kyoto Purple Sanga, where he was often criticised for a perceived lack of mental and physical strength. However, he has worked hard to prove the naysayers wrong and heads into this World Cup as a proven performer.

"Irrepressible little artist" just read "Aww, he's such a cute li'l scamp!!!" to me.  Looks like I got a cutie patootie on my team.  The picture on his wikipedia page is even adorable, all standin' out in the field looking like he's the only one there, with that stance that says "my mom forgot to pick me up from school :(​"

In fact I think he just became my favorite player of all time.  He's like Charlie Chaplin, he's just a li'l tramp that everyone feels sad for and it makes him endearing.  And this is all stuff I made up about him after seeing two pictures and a paragraph.  Score one for picking a player at random.
