Manchester United suffered yet another pre-season defeat at the hands of Yokohama, meaning David Moyes has now lost two of out his three games in charge of the English champions.

For a warm-down, he made his players take part in a shooting competition, with one rule - if you miss, you continue until you hit the back of the net.

The coaches for United stood on the byline next to the goal and then drilled the balls to the edge of the box for the players to control and then shoot at goal.

If they scored, training would be completed and they could rest for the day, however, if they missed, they had to carry on which meant one player was left standing alone - that player was Shinji Kagawa.

Danny Welbeck, Wilfried Zaha, Jesse Lingard and Michael Carrick all scored with their first attempt on goal, leaving both Anders Lindegaard and David de Gea rooted to the spot.

On the second attempt, Robin van Persie, Anderson, Rafael and Tom Cleverley smashed home their efforts, whilst defender Rio Ferdinand gave up and walked off, later followed by Ryan Giggs.

At the end there were just three remaining - Alex Buttner, Patrice Evra and Kagawa.

After numerous missed attempts, left-back duo Buttner and Evra smashed home their efforts and left Kagawa all alone in the middle.

The Japan international scored six times for United last season in his debut campaign and on this showing, his shooting will have to improve if he wants to better that goal-tally.
