Timing helped put Iwata in N.Z. driver’s seat

Takuya Iwata spent several seasons at FC Gifu without managing to make a J.League appearance but on Thursday night he will be stepping out at Yokohama International Stadium as his Auckland City side take on Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the opening game of the 2012 Club World Cup.

I wrote a feature on the delivery truck driver’s incredible story for The Daily Yomiuri.
