Forbes Asia has released its annual 'Top 30 Under 30' list for 2020, which acknowledges the achievements and global contributions of remarkable individuals under the age of 30, across 13 different categories.

The recognition for the 24-year-old follows after the Japan international excelled for both club and country last year, not least of which with his performances during the group stages of this season's UEFA Champions League campaign. 

Minamino scored twice in six group stage appearances for Salzburg in the competition, including a goal and assist in a standout performance against current employers and reigning champions Liverpool back in December.
