OSAKA, Japan - Wilfried Zaha scored in the first minute of stoppage time Friday to give Manchester United a 2-2 draw with Japanese club Cerezo Osaka in a preseason friendly.

Zaha tapped into an open net to ensure the English champions didn't lose their second preseason match in Japan under David Moyes. Yokohama F Marinos beat United 3-2 on Tuesday.

Cerezo forward Kenyu Sugimoto took advantage of a defensive mistake by United defender Chris Smalling to give his team the lead in the 33rd minute.

Shinji Kagawa was denied on a penalty kick in the 53rd by Cerezo goalkeeper Kim Jin-hyeon, but equalized one minute later, taking a pass from Ryan Giggs and beating Kim from close range.

Cerezo briefly regained the lead on a goal by Takumi Minamino in the 63rd.
