There goes the final whistle. It finishes Cerezo Osaka 2 Manchester United 2 - and that's probably the right result after both teams played well and showed plenty of attacking ambition. Shinji Kagawa bossed proceedings against his former team and should play an integral role in the coming season, with his partnership with Robin van Persie showing real signs of promise.
GOAL! 2-2 Wilfried Zaha. United grab a deserved equaliser as Zaha finishes off a flowing move by tapping in from close range.
A good chance falls to Lingard, but he drags a right-footed strike just wide of the upright. Not long left now.
Brave defending from Smalling snuffs out a good chance for the hosts. Up the other end, Anderson wins a free-kick in a dangerous position for United.
Moyes rings the changes, taking off Giggs, Young and Buttner, who are replaced by Cleverley, Lingard and Evra.
Pre-season results aren't everything - but United could do without another defeat as they look to build confidence and fitness ahead of their Premier League title defence. 15 minutes left.
United make another change, sending on Adnan Januzaj for van Persie, who has looked sharp and in good nick.
SUPERB SAVE! Maruhashi sees an 18-yard shot deflect off Rafael towards the top corner - but Lindegaard flys at full stretch to tip the ball away for a corner. The hosts are on top right now!
GOAL! 2-1 Minamino. What a hit! Just as United seemed to be taking charge of the game, 18-year-old forward Minamino sends a 20-yard piledriver into the top of the net, giving Lindegaard no chance at all.
Zaha has made a decent start to life as a United player and goes close here, powering into the box and driving a low angled shot narrowly wide of the upright.
An hour gone and it really is anyone's game. Rafael's whipped-in cross is well gathered by Kim with Welbeck waiting to pounce.
Kagawa makes way for Zaha, but has made a massive impression on Moyes I'm sure, playing brilliantly in the hole role. Might be worth getting both him and RVP in your Fantasy Football teams as I think they're going to score and create stacks of goals.
That should hopefully settle United down - and is great for Kagawa, who has been bossing proceedings against his former team and deserved to find the net.
GOAL! 1-1 Kagawa. The United man quickly makes amends for his penalty miss, controlling Giggs' low cross from the left, swivelling and beating Kim with a low left-footed strike.
Young is trying to drive United forward and plays in Giggs before the Welshman is closed down in the box. It's end to end at the moment, with Osaka winning a corner which comes to nothing.
More transfer discussion on Twitter, with @morrison280876 saying: I'd keep Valencia, but sell Rooney. He is obviously unhappy, sell him for £30M minimum and invest in better players.
United have started the second half at a good tempo, considering the sapping conditions. Both sides looking to attack.
We've kicked off the second half, with United making one change as Anderson replaces Jones in midfield.
Just to confirm Kagawa is playing in the 'hole' behind van Persie and Welbeck, and has linked up brilliantly with the Dutchman in particular. The blot on his first-half display was his wasted chance when RVP laid the ball on a plate for him.
@Dyl_Chez says: I think sell Nani, Anderson, Evra and Valencia and bring in Bale, Fabregas and Baines and we will be unstoppable!!
Some more Twitter reaction coming in. @tqyinc says: I think some of our boys need the hair-dryer treatment esp the sloppy defence-line, and welbeck is blowing off chances!
The whistle blows to bring an entertaining first half to a close. United trail 1-0 at the break after Smalling's mistake allowed Sugimoto to pounce on 34 minutes. David Moyes' men have created plenty of chances, though, so join us for the second half shortly.
CHANCE! United have stepped it up a gear in the last few minutes, and a fine move ends with Welbeck dragging an angled 18-yard shot inches wide of the upright.
SAVE! Kagawa's glorious backheel flick finds Giggs in the box and his right-footed shot is palmed to safety by flying keeper Kim.
WOODWORK & MISS! Welbeck smacks the upright with a left-footed strike, the ball ricochets to van Persie who unselfishly sets up Kagawa, only to see his team-mate sky a right-footed shot high over the crossbar. Great chance spurned for United.
GOAL! 1-0 Kenyu Sugimoto: Smalling is caught in possession by Minamino and the ball breaks to Sugimoto, who coolly slots the ball past a wrong-footed Lindegaard to open the scoring.
CHANCE! It's an ambitious one but shows the confidence oozing through Cerezo Osaka as Edno fires over from 20 yards
I'd have to agree with that. United have got Smalling and Rio in central defence today and have given up plenty of chances so far.
Ash_Blackshaw makes an interesting point on Twitter, saying: Kagawa is solid proof that we can cope without Rooney. Give him his chance next season!
@davidtmurphy says on Twitter: surprised Lingard didn't get the nod given his recent form and the fact he will only get limited opportunities this season.
CHANCES! This game is wide open with both teams posing a threat. Sugimoto should have done much better than steering a left-footed chance over the bar from 16 yards - then Edno has a free header 10 yards out, and aims it straight at Lindegaard.
Kagawa really does look the business, and is drawing plenty of praise on Twitter. @CJ_Vybzer says: In a central attacking midfield role Kagawa plays his best football, he has a fab creative mind and we need to utilise that.
CHANCE! Kagawa is heavily involved again, finding van Persie on the right flank, and his cross is headed over the crossbar by Jones, who should have hit the target.
DOUBLE SAVE! Lindegaard pulls off two fantastic saves to keep Osaka at bay. First he palms a 20-yard drive from Kusukami round the upright from a corner, then he gets down low to smother a goalbound header from Yokoyama.
@DevonKallend says on Twitter: Kagawa is gonna be a forced to be reckoned with if he is played in the attacking midfield position this season.
David Moyes shouts: 'Well done Danny, well done Shinji, keep it moving.' Welbeck has done a lot of closing down but hasn't really got into the game, whereas Kagawa really is showing his class.
@romc97 says on Twitter: if kagawa gets stuck out on the left for most of the season then I wouldn't be surprised to see him go next year.
SAVE! Kagawa is revelling in an attacking central midfield role and finds van Persie in the box with a deft right-footed pass. The Dutchman decides to dink the ball, which hits keeper Kim in the face for a brave save.
CHANCE! The hosts draw a fine low save from Lindegaard after Sugimoto lets fly with a 20-yard drive. Both teams are looking sharp - and there's a good atmosphere too.
Some glorious interplay between Kagawa and van Persie nearly creates an opening for the Dutchman, but goalkeeper Kim does well to snuff out the danger.
Giggs bursts down the left flank but is closed down well as he attempts a cross. Bright start from United.
CHANCE! Giggs lofts a glorious throughball which the defender misses, allowing van Persie a clear chance which he sidefoots, only to see Kim make a good save with his legs.
We're off and running, with United looking to do better than their previous result, a 3-2 defeat by Yokohama F Marinos.
Wilfried Zaha is on the bench for this game - but Ashley Young has heaped praise on him, telling MUTV: 'He's going to be a fantastic player. We wouldn't have signed him if he wasn't going to have a great future and he'll have the experience of listening to the older, experienced players talk.'It's always good for the club having additions like Wilf and he's been fantastic.''
MUTV are claiming Kagawa will play on the left, with Giggs being the man in the middle. The players are in the tunnel - wearing their new shiny new away kit - so we'll soon see who lines up on the left flank.
Shinji Kagawa gets a licence to thrill from a central midfield role alongside Phil Jones - this could be a breakthrough season for the former Borussia Dortumund playmaker.
