The Black Stars of Ghana suffered a heavy defeat to Japan in the 2022 Kirin Cup tournament semis on Friday morning, 10th June 2022.

Japan romped the Black Stars of Ghana by an emphatic 4-1 at the Noevir Stadium in the second semi-final of the ongoing Kirin Cup tournament.

The Japanese dominated the game and the scoreline flattered Ghana who was impotent for large spells of the game.


The hosts took the lead just before the half-hour mark through right-back Miki Yamane’s left-footed finish which nestled into the bottom corner.


As the Japanese dropped their intensity after taking the lead, the Ghanaians found more joy and Jordan Ayew benefitted from some sloppy play to smash the ball into the net and get Ghana an undeserved equaliser.

Parity was short-lived a Karou Mitoma cross evaded everyone including Lawrence Ati-Zigi to give Japan the lead once and Japan headed into the half a goal up.


The second half was much of the same with Japan comfortably on top. Mitoma turned his marker inside out on Ghana’s right and cut the ball back for Real Madrid attacker Takefusa Kubo to score his side’s 3rd. There was not much Ati Zigi could do as the ball took a wicked deflection but the goal was coming.

Japan wrapped up the rout with a Daizen Maeda tap-in as Junya Ito did all the hard work on the Japanese right side and put the ball into the 6 yard box where the Celtic striker was waiting.

The match was Ghana’s 9th game of 2022, in that time the Black Stars have 1 win, 4 draws, and 4 defeats.
