VIDEO: Kagawa denied hat-trick by missing two golden chances

Manchester United attacker Shinji Kagawa should have had a hat-trick against his former club.

Shinji Kagawa went back to where it all started early on Friday, as his Manchester United side took on Cerezo Osaka.

He started the game, after being rested against Yokohama, and played his role as United drew the game 2-2, courtesy of a late Wilfried Zaha equaliser.

Kagawa scored United's first goal, and it's unlikely to be a game or occasion he will forget in a hurry.

But the attacker holds himself to high standards, as he has demonstrated by his repeated self-critique of his mixed first season at United and will likely be annoyed he didn't single handedly win the game by scoring a hat-trick in front of his new and old fans.

He missed a penalty and also fluffed a sitter for what was an effort from point blank range. You can check them both out below:


And here's the one he did score...
