 is a Japanesemarker soccer player. He currently plays for Vissel Kobe but spent his career to date at Gamba Osaka in the J.League.


Career

He continued to study at Doshisha Universitymarker well into his professional career, graduating and finishing his studies. Miyamoto speaks fluent English, with a little French also in his canon, after spending time with Gamba team mates Claude Dambury and Patrick Mboma in the past, as well as coach Federic Antonetti. While in Austria, he studied German.

While he was the de facto team captain of Gamba Osaka in 2004 and 2005, Gamba's coach was unhappy at the time spent with the national team by Miyamoto and handed the captaincy of Gamba to Satoshi Yamaguchi. Miyamoto continued to captain Japan for a while, ironically, often sitting on the bench for Gamba Osaka. But his professionalism shone through, and he took it all in stride.With Ivica Osim taking over the national team from Zico in 2006, Japan saw a clean sweep and Miyamoto was one of many who had probably played his last game for the Japan national team. In December 2006, Miyamoto signed for 1 season with Red Bull Salzburg with an option for another season. In December 2007, he signed a new deal with the Austrian club through 2009.

On, 15 January, 2009, he signed for Vissel Kobe.

International

He played in the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship and 2000 Olympic football tournament. As a centre back, he served as captain for Japan in the 2002 World Cup, after an injury to Ryuzo Morioka, who had begun the tournament as captain. He then continued to captain his country through the 2004 AFC Asian Cup and the 2006 FIFA World Cup. "Tsune" played the first two group matches of the cup, but was suspended for the third and last match against Brazil after he received yellow cards against Australia and Croatia. Yuji Nakazawa wore the armband in his place.
