Man United playmaker Shinji Kagawa scored a classy goal for Japan v Costa Rica [GIF & video]
- June 3, 2014
Will the World Cup be the time Shinji Kagawa emerges after two disappointing seasons at Manchester United.
The Japanese attacker has not lived up to his potential at Old Trafford since joining from Borussia Dortmund – perhaps due to the fact Kagawa has often been played on the left wing.
If Kagawa was to impress in Brazil, there would likely be calls for Louis van Gaal to start the Japanese playmaker next season or to offload him this summer.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Kagawa scored a typically classy goal for Japan in a pre-World Cup warm-up match in Florida against Costa Rica.
With 10 minutes remaining Kagawa played a lovely give-and-go with Yoichiro Kakitani before the Manchester United man slotted home past Costa Rica keeper Keylor Navas.
