Ryo Ishizaki

石崎了, Bruce Harper
Ishizaki Ryo is Tsubasa Ozoras best friend since the storys very beginning. He lives in the city of Nankatsu Shizuoka and is introduced as the captain of the until then very unsucessful Nankatsu elementary soccer team. Though Ishizakis soccer techniques are far from Tsubasas level his strong will and relentless personality has won himself a position in the national team. A demonstration of this is shown during World Youth Cup Finals when Ishizaki was knocked outcold by blocking an extremely powerful shot at point blank range with his speciality the face block defense.
