This will come as no surprise to you, but we at Fear The Wall are massive fans of Shinji Kagawa.

Over the years, Kagawa has become one of Dortmund’s most reliable attackers, and he genuinely seems like a great guy. That’s why we’re ecstatic when we see him score a beautiful goal like this one.

Dortmund needed a response after giving up their early lead against Augsburg, and Kagawa provided quite the response.

It’s not a goal we’ve seen from Shinji before, but he’s so skillful that it’s very believable. He has always had this in his locker.

Kagawa’s bit of magic made experienced goalkeeper Marwin Hitz look helpless...and he probably was. No one was saving such a perfectly-placed chip.

Shinji forever.
