Japan team news

Japan’s summer international window has been held together by friendlies, first taking part in the Kirin Challenge Cup before the Kirin Cup. In the Kirin Challenge Cup, Japan beat Paraguay and then narrowly lost to Brazil, also losing Santa Clara midfielder Hidemasa Morita to injury across the two matches.

But Morita is the only absentee from the initial squad, with the likes of Takumi Minamino, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Maya Yoshida and Yuto Magatomo all still involved.

Ghana team news

Meanwhile, Ghana have been busy in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying and it has been a positive start. The Black Stars have been put in a qualifying group alongside Angola, Central African Republic and Madagascar, with the top two making the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Ghana won their first game, beating Madagascar 3-0 and a 1-1 draw with Central African Republic has kept them on top of the group on goal difference.

However, Ghana have now said goodbye to a number of players, taking a reduced squad to Japan. While the likes of Jordan and Andre Ayew, Mohammed Kudus and Daniel Amartey have remained, Joe Wolloacott, Denis Odoi, Jonathan Mensah, Abdul Mumin, Gideon Mensah, Joseph Aidoo, Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, Iddrisu Baba, Augustine Okrah, Elisha Owusu, Antoine Semenyo, Osman Bukari, Kamaldeen Sulemana and Joseph Paintsil haven’t travelled after Afcon qualifying.

Scoreline prediction: Japan 2-1 Ghana
