BY foxsports • July 23, 2013

Yoshihito Fujita scored with three minutes left to lead Yokohama F Marinos to a 3-2 preseason win over Manchester United on Tuesday.

Fujita beat United goalkeeper David de Gea with a low, left-foot drive in the 87th minute to hand the English champions their second preseason loss under David Moyes.

Yokohama got on the scoresheet only 27 seconds in when Marquinhos pounced on a poorly-cleared ball to volley home from 10 meters (yards).

United equalized in the 19th minute when Wilfried Zaha fired a low cross that deflected off a Yokohama defender to Jesse Lingard, who tapped in from close range.

An own-goal by Yokohama defender Masakazu Tashiro in the 31st made it 2-1 for United, but the Japanese hosts equalized in the 49th on a header by Fabio.
