Ahead of Japan's Confederations Cup Group A match against Italy, ESPN helpfully highlighted three stand-out players for the Asian Cup winners. Unfortunately, they spelled Shinji Kagawa's name as "Kawawa" in the corresponding graphic. One might think that making 26 appearances for Manchester United last season would be enough to achieve adequate name recognition to avoid such a mix-up, but apparently not.
Of course, as karmic payback for highlighting this mistake, I will probably inadvertently type out his name as "Benji Kahaha" at least once next season.
