FIFA Women’s World Cup Golden Boot winner Hinata Miyazawa has signed for England’s Women’s Super League (WSL) club Manchester United.
The Japanese midfielder has signed for the English side from Mynavi Sendai Ladies.
The 23-year-old scored five goals in four matches at last month’s World Cup to help Japan reach the quarter-finals.
She scored twice in Japan’s opening 5-0 victory against Zambia and followed it up with another double as they competed their Group C campaign with a 4-0 win over Spain, who recovered to go on to lift the trophy.
Miyazawa’s other goal came in the round-of-16 where Japan beat Norway 3-1 before losing 2-1 to Sweden.
“I am truly very happy to be part of this wonderful family and this great team,” said Miyazawa.
“I am really looking forward to getting started and hope my style of play will excite our fans.”
