Coach Paa Kwasi Fabin

Coach of the National U-23 Male team, Paa Kwesi Fabin, has named a provisional squad for two international friendly matches against Japan.

The 27-man squad will begin camping later this month to prepare for the  friendly games against their Japanese counterparts in Tokyo on June 4 and June 8.

Key Players from the squad were picked from the team that won the 2021 CAF U-20 Africa  Cup of Nations earlier this year in Mauritania. The players have graduated to the U-23 team in line with the GFA’s transitional policy.

Japan will use the games to prepare for the Olympic Games Football competition which takes place during the summer.

Coach Fabin on the other hand sees the game as an opportunity to assess players for Ghana’s upcoming assignments.
