Black Stars play Japan  in September

Ghana's national team, the Black Stars, will play Japan in an international friendly in September.

The match will be played in Japan on Tuesday 8th September.

The warm-up match has been lined up to prepare the Black Stars for their future matches.

The Blue Samurai, who reached the round of 16 of the 2010 World Cup, are expected to give Ghana a good test.

"We have arranged a friendly against Japan as part of our plan of keeping the Black Stars engaged in matches on international friendly match dates," Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantaky told www.ghanafa.org.

"Japan are one of the tough football nations in the world today and going by their performance at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa they will give us a good test.

"We want to leave no stone unturned with adequate preparation for the future competitions we play in. Playing in matches like this will keep the squad in shape."

The Black Stars are playing in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers where they are second in Group D.
