Japan beats Ghana 6-0 in pre-Olympic games friendly

    The Japanese Under 24 side beat the Black Meteors of Ghana by six goals to nil in a friendly match played on Saturday.

    Japan which is the host nation for the 2021 Olympic games invited the Black Meteors for a friendly game which is part of the preparation for the tournament.

    Japan started the game the better of the two sides and came close to breaking the deadlock after a mistake by Frank Assinki.

    Moments later the Asians broke the deadlock after Doan Ritsu half volleyed in an earlier save by the Ghanaian goalie.

    Sixteen minutes later Real Madrid midfielder Takefusa Kubo doubled the lead with a brilliant curler.

    And right at the stroke of half time, it went from bad to worse for defender Frank Assinki who turned in a cross from the right into his own net.

    The Japanese returned from the break hungrier for more goals and three minutes later Soma Yuki picked a clever pass from Kubo to net his side’s fourth.

    Ueda Ayase headed in his side’s fifth from a well worked play from the Asians to put the beyond Ghana.

    The Black Meteors coach Paa Kwesi Fabin made four changes at a time, but the quartet could not make a difference.

    And with a minute left Mitoma Kaora twisted and turned Amoabeng for the sixth goal of the game.
