VIDEO: Shinji Kagawa nets again on international duty

Kagawa United

Four days after netting against Costa Rica, Manchester United star Shinji Kagawa has found the net again during Japan’s entertaining 4-3 victory over Zambia.

It has been a good couple of weeks for Manchester United stars on international duty as a number of United stars have rediscovered their mojo.

Amongst those who have put behind a disappointing Premier League campaign is Japanese international Shinji Kagawa.

The 25-year-old arrived at Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund with a reputation as a goalscoring playmaker, though his irregularities at finding the net since his move has left a lot of questions raised.

Was Kagawa overhyped? Is he not suited to English football or is he simply not being used to full effect at the Red Devils?

Arguments could be laid for each question, though his form towards the back end of last season and recently for the national team does suggest that the fine quality is there.

Playing in either a central position or coming in off the left flank, Kagawa has impressed for Japan over the past week and has found himself on the scoresheet for the second game running as Japan beat Zambia 4-3.

After receiving the ball on the left side of the area late in the game, the Man United star cut inside before curling in a cross-come-shot which evaded everyone and left the Zambia goalkeeper with no chance as the ball nestled into the far corner.

Whilst not a goal to tell your grandkids about in the future, it is another confidence booster ahead of an important World Cup for Kagawa as he bids to impress his future Man United boss Louis Van Gaal.
