(Sporting Alert) — Manchester United playmaker Shinji Kagawa is amongst the starters for Japan in today’s friendly football international clash with Canada at DOHA.
Kagawa, who recently returned the Manchester United lineup after being sidelined with an injury, will provide the attacking support to Ryoichi Maeda and Shinji Okazaki in the forward line.
The midfielder will be hoping to get more playing time during the break from the Barclays Premier League as he continues to push for a consistent starting place for the Red Devils.
