Concussion rules Borussia Dortmund's Shinji Kagawa out of Japan's international friendly with Brazil on Tuesday.

Shinji Kagawa has been ruled out of Japan's friendly encounter against Brazil on Tuesday.

The playmaker, who rejoined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United in August, suffered a head injury during Friday's 1-0 win over Jamaica.

He played the entire 90 minutes, but the 25-year-old later complained of dizziness and was taken to hospital for tests, where he was diagnosed with concussion.

As a result, he will not travel to Singapore with his Japanese teammates for the clash against the five-time world champions and will instead return to his club.
