Man Utd midfielder Kagawa: My hat-trick will be ignored in Japan

Shinji Kagawa says his hat-trick for Manchester United will be overshadowed in Japan by the lead-up to the Real Madrid game.

The Japan midfielder hit a hat-trick in the 4-0 rout of Norwich City on Saturday.

That Kagawa responded to a question of how his hat-trick will go down in Japan by saying "it will probably be huge news in Japan but in Japan they are looking forward to the Real game" merely shows what expectation surrounds that eagerly-anticipated duel.
