A four nation tournament which includes Ghana, Japan, Chile and Tunisia will be played in Japan and the Black Stars start their game with the host, Japan tomorrow. Depending on the results, Ghana will meet Chile or Tunisia for either first place or the third place match. Sad news is that Ghana’s squad has been reduced to an 18-man squad due players leaving camp.
A number of the Ghanaian players have been affected by COVID-19 while some are attending to other matters of equal importance. These matches are supposed to serve as preparatory games for the team’s campaign in the upcoming world cup in Qatar and it is a bit of a challenge seeing the coach would have wanted to make an assessment of some players. The 18-man squad is listed below
Lawrence Ati Jigi (FC St. Gallen / Switzerland) Abdul Manaf Nurudene (KAS Eupen / Belgium)
Mubarak Wakaso (Shenzhen FC / China) Andrew Yiadom (Reading FC / England) Abdul Rahman Baba (Reading FC / England) Daniel Amatei (LeicesterCity / England) Dennis Nkrumah Korsah (Hearts Of Oak / Ghana) Alidu Seidu (Clermont Foot 63 / France)
