Black Stars thrashed Four Nations Tournament

Ghana’s Black Stars has been beaten by Japan in the 2022 Kirin Four Nations Tournament in Japan.

The hosts beat Ghana by a 4-1 score line in their first game of the competition.

The Japanese team dominated proceedings and got the opener in the 29th minute.

Defender Miki Yamane powered the Samurai to a 1-0 lead.

Ghana fought hard to get the equalizer and found it in the 44th minute when Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew made it 1-1.

Japan had the final say in the first half as midfielder Kaoru Mitoma scored in added time of first half to give them a 2-1 lead at the break.

After the recess, Ghana head coach Otto Addo brought on Felix Afena-Gyan of AS Roma and Fatawu Issahaku but that proved futile as Japan got the third goal.

Real Mallorca forward Takefusa Kubo made it 3-1 in the 73rd minute before Daizen Maeda of Celtic put the icing on the cake in the 83rd minute to seal a 4-1 win for Japan.

The results means Japan will face Tunisia who beat Chile in the final then Ghana takes on Chile in a 3rd place game.
