Ghana U23 coach Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has shuffled his starting XI as he names the starting XI to face Japan’s Blue Samurai in a second international friendly on Tuesday.
Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richmond Ayi, who has been a regular fixture in the Ghana Olympic Team since 2019, has been restored to the post as Vision FC’s William Essu is benched by the under-fire Ghana coach.

Genk attacker Osman Bukari, Great Olympics’ Samuel Abbey-Ashie Quaye and Frank Assinki have all held down their places.
Schalke 04’s Joselpho Barnes steps out of the substitutes list from the last time out to also play for the team as Samuel Obeng Gyabaah drops to the bench.
