Shinji continued to make progress in his second season at United, with his ability to play effectively out wide or in the "number 10" role proving to be a valuable asset.

He was man-of-the-match in the narrow home win over Real Sociedad, and pulled the strings in the 5-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen in Germany. 

Swapping positions with Adnan Januzaj against Swansea in the league reaped dividends, and some eye-catching performances alongside the young Belgian and Juan Mata late in the season underlined Shinji's development, even though he finished the campaign without scoring.

Unsurprisingly included in the Japan squad for the World Cup in Brazil, Shinji appeared in all three of his country's matches in Brazil.
