Shinzo Koroki’s goal named best of March

Urawa Reds striker Shinzo Koroki has been awarded the 2016 MEIJI YASUDA J1 League Goal of the Month award for his strike against Shonan Bellmare.

Up 1-0 in the second half, Koroki passed the ball to team-mate Yosuke Kashiwagi before slipping past Shonan’s defenders and receiving the ball again to deliver a one-touch shot inside the far post.

“It’s an incredible honour to be selected,” Koroki said. “We were able to completely tear down their defence, and with several players working together it was a very Urawa Reds-goal.”
