Japan's Shinji Kagawa Blows Mascot's Mind in Tunnel Before World Cup Match

Shinji Kagawa may not have been able to inspire Japan to victory in their opening World Cup match against the Ivory Coast, but he did leave an impression on this young mascot.

In the clip above, which has gone viral in Japan, the Manchester United midfielder emerges as if from nowhere, and the girl's subsequent expression is one of confusion.

Of course, from a slightly different angle it might have been spoiled by seeing Shinji simply bent down tying his shoelaces. But a magician should never reveal his secrets.
