Japan's Inui guides Eintracht Frankfurt to German cup win

Takashi Inui was the mastermind behind Eintracht Frankfurt's 2-1 DFB Pokal (German Cup) win over VfL Bochum on Wednesday.

The 25-year old Japanese attacking midfielder opened the scoring against his former club in the 23rd minute before turning provider two minutes later as the Eagles moved through to the next phase.

Inui received a ball from Sebastian Rode to fire home inside the box to give Eintracht the ascendency before creating the second for Stefan Aigner with a lovely pass into the area.

The goal was Inui's second of the season after netting in a European qualifier against Qarabag last month.
