VIDEO: Shinji Kagawa’s great goal vs Costa Rica

Shinji Kagawa got on the score sheet today with a great goal against Costa Rica in Japan’s World Cup warm-up match.

With a strong run from deep, Kagawa made his way into the box off the back of a smart 1-2 and readjusted his feet well to steer in the finish.


One criticism of Kagawa last season at United is that he never seemed to run at pace with the ball but clearly it’s something he has got in his locker, he just needs to do it more often at United.

Every United player will be happy to see Louis van Gaal come in and for Kagawa, it will be another opportunity, potentially his last, to prove himself at Old Trafford and if you’re a World Cup betting man, putting Kagawa down to score in Japan’s first match against the Ivory Coast in Brazil might not be a bad shout.
