Man United & Japan’s Shinji Kagawa claims a 4th minute assist, scores a 6th minute penalty v New Zealand [Video]

Shinji Kagawa may not be in favour at Manchester United, but the playmaker remains a shoo-in for Japanese national team.

Kagawa made an instant impact for the Blue Samurai against New Zealand on Wednesday when the Manchester United man claimed a fourth minute assist against the All Whites.

Showing off his superb distribution skills which have been so rarely seen at Old Trafford this term, Kagawa raked a terrific ball over the top of the New Zealand defence which teeds up Shinji Okazaki for the opener.

Minutes later Kagawa got on the scoresheet himself drilling home a penalty.
