(Defender) Nathan Swift (Ichirōta Kazemaru) – This fast player has blue eyes and brown hair held back by a ponytail. He also acts as the team’s side captain outside the game. Originally a member of the track club team, Kazemaru is convinced by Endou of becoming player of the soccer team, because the team needed 4 more players for their match against Teikoku; if Endou could not get them the soccer club would be closed. Kazemaru is finally convinced by the promise of fighting a lot of stronger players, altogether with Endou fighting spirit. During the FFI arc, he learns two new moves called the Banana Shoot and the Fuujin no Mai (Dance of the Wind God). In episode 94-95 he is put as captain, this is when Endou can’t make it to the game when Endou, Kidou, Sakuma and Fudou were helping the Italian team with a problem caused by Kageyama.
