The national under-23 male football team head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has made a shortlist of 27-man squad to represent Ghana against Japan in the upcoming international friendly.
The Black Meteors will begin camping later this month in preparation for two international friendly games against Japan in Tokyo on June 4 and June 8.
Notable key players stemmed from the squad that won the CAF U20 Africa Cup of Nations in Mauritius earlier this year in line with GFA’s transition policy.
