Inter Milan fullback Yuto Nagatomo admits he's shocked by the earthquake in Japan.

His homeland was hit by one of the strongest earthquakes of all time on Friday morning and it sparked a deadly tsunami.

"It was terrifying and I was distraught," explained Nagatomo after a 1-1 draw at Brescia.

"Even before the game I felt my head spinning, as I kept thinking back to what was happening in Japan.

"At the starting whistle, I managed to put aside those ugly thoughts and concentrate on the game.

"The good thing about being a professional football player is that it's my duty to do my best and in that way reassure my people.

"I spoke to my family and thankfully they are alright."
