Enjoy Muto's hat-trick against Augsburg on MD11 again:

The departure of Shinji Okazaki in the summer was a hefty blow to 1. FSV Mainz 05, so it was lucky for them that they had a ready-made replacement in another Japan starlet, Yoshinori Muto. Signed from FC Tokyo, the 23-year-old has been an instant hit, scoring seven times in his first 14 league appearances. Moreover, after 11 matches he had struck more goals than any other Japanese player in Bundesliga history and is only the second Samurai Blue player to score a German top-flight hat-trick, a feat that not even Okazaki or a certain Shinji Kagawa have achieved.
