Shinji Kagawa plays down Japan's 1-0 win over France on Friday.

Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa has called for 'calm' following Japan's 1-0 win over France on Friday.

The 23-year-old scored the only goal of the match as Japan recorded a famous win in Paris, but the playmaker has refused to get carried away with the victory.

"It's an important result. Right now I'm in a tight spot with the team so I wanted to find some confidence," he told reporters.

"As a team we still have to improve, and it was a friendly so [Franck] Ribery didn't start, so if you think about it calmly there isn't quite a sense of having achieved anything."

Kagawa has scored two goals in six matches for United this season.
