Kagawa notches 12th goal of season

Kyodo

DORTMUND, Germany — Shinji Kagawa scored a record-setting 12th goal of the season Friday but Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund let two points slip away after being held to a thrilling 4-4 draw at home against Stuttgart.

Dortmund broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute when Kagawa smashed Sebastian Kehl's header into the roof of the net from close range.

Kagawa's haul of 12 goals is the most in a season by a Japanese player in Europe's top flight. He eclipsed the 11 scored by Naohiro Takahara for Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2006-2007 season.
