Black Stars cashes with Japan today in Kirin Cup opener

The Black Stars of Ghana will battle the Samurai Blue of Japan in the opener of the Kirin tournament today at 09:55 GMT at the Misaki Park Stadium.

It will be the 21st edition of the international friendly football tournament, with the last one taking place in 2016. Japan was in the final of that edition, losing 2-1 to Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Ghana has been invited to compete for the first time in the history of the tournament.
Chile and Tunisia will also battle each other in the first semi-final on Friday. While this is just a friendly game, it will be a good opportunity for the teams to get themselves ready ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be held in Qatar.
The four-time African champions have assembled eighteen players for the tournament including Hearts of Oak duo, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, and Dennis Korsah.
First choice goalkeeper Jojo Wollacot, Gideon Mensah, Jonathan Mensah, Richard Ofori, Antoine Selorm Semenyo, and Elisha Owusu didn’t travel with the team to the Asian country for the two friendlies.
