Man Utd midfielder Kagawa: No pre-match nerves for me

Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa admits facing Everton will always be a memorable occasion for him.

The Japanese midfielder made his Manchester United debut in a floodlit fixture against Everton, in August 2012.

"In the build-up to the game, I seem to remember feeling pretty calm and relaxed," he told United Review.

"I don't recall being too nervous or thinking 'this is the Premier League and it's going to be tough'. But the game itself didn't pan out well for us, of course. It was a tough evening, we lost 1-0 and it wasn't a happy start to the season. But things got better, as we now know."
