The 2023 Women’s World Cup has concluded with Spain winning its final against Japan, led by Miyazawa who finished as top goal scorer with five goals scored during this competition.
Manchester United Women have made quick work of signing Mynavi Sendai attacking midfielder, 23 years old, quickly beating off competition from Liverpool to land her.
Why Miyazawa is a good fit for Man Utd?
Manchester United Football Club is an acclaimed and globally renowned club based out of Manchester, England, best known by their fans as The Red Devils. Over its history it has won several domestic and European titles while maintaining an extensive international presence.
Miyazawa joins an established WSL side and will add another dynamic to their squad – she is an exceptional goalscorer who excels at scoring from all types of positions.
Miyazawa scored five goals across four matches at this summer’s World Cup, becoming the only non-European player to receive an award. She scored twice against Zambia during their 5-0 group-stage win and twice more during Japan’s 4-0 rout of eventual champions Spain. Miyazawa won both goalscoring awards – twice against Zambia and twice more in Spain’s 4-0 defeat; she was also honored with winning the Golden Boot, following in the footsteps of fellow Japanese Homare Sawa, who won it in 2011. Miyazawa currently plays for Mynavi Sendai in their WE League season.

Miyazawa’s style of play
Homare Sawa, Japan’s 2011 World Cup winning player who also scored five times to capture the Golden Boot award, followed in his footsteps and also scored five goals to claim this year’s prize.
Miyazawa will add another attacking weapon to United’s midfield lineup with her impressive pace and dribbling skills, easily passing through defensive lines and using timing to get behind opponents’ backlines.
Miyazawa has scored nine times in 24 national team appearances since making her debut in 2021, as well as making an impression with Mynavi Sendai of the Japanese Women’s League by scoring eight times over two league seasons – and she will look to add to that tally this season.
Hinata Miyazawa has shone bright at the 2023 Women’s World Cup. Representing Japan, Miyazawa scored five goals throughout Australia and New Zealand’s tournament – surpassing Kadidiatou Diani, Alexandra Popp, Jill Roord and Amanda Ilestedt, all of whom managed four strikes each.
This 23-year-old also scored twice during Japan’s 4-0 rout of Spain and made a tremendous impression with her creative right wing play, providing Marc Skinner’s team with an ideal target up front this season.
Miyazawa will become United’s fifth signing this summer after they signed Brazil forward Geyse, youngster Emma Watson and Evie Rabjohn as well as defender Gemma Evans. United fended off competition from Liverpool for Mynavi Sendai player Miyazawa who plays her club football in Japan’s WE League; their deal should be finalised prior to next month’s season starting; she will replace Alessia Russo who left United for Arsenal earlier in 2018.

Miyazawa scored five goals at the World Cup to become the highest scoring non-European player of the competition, scoring in all but one game for Japan including an emphatic 4-0 thrashing of eventual champions Spain in their final group stage match before exiting in the quarter-finals against Sweden.
Her total is even more remarkable considering she only scored nine times for Mynavi Sendai since joining from Tokyo Verdy Beleza in 2021.
United already boasts England internationals Alessia Russo, Yui Hasegawa and Rachel Daly in their attacking line-up. She will further bolster an already impressive attacking unit featuring England internationals like Russo, Hasegawa and Daly in an attacking line-up that includes full-back Ona Batlle as full-back and Russo as midfielder respectively – an addition that should help break Chelsea’s stranglehold of the WSL this term after losing full-back Ona Batlle to Arsenal and Barcelona respectively on free transfers last term 59 points were collected last season by United.
