All the participating teams have booked their tickets to the World Cup and will therefore use the tournament as a preparation ahead of Qatar.

A statement from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) said the Black Stars will face hosts Japan in their opening game while Tunisia also takes on Chile.

Ghana qualified for the World Cup in March following a 1-1 aggregate scoreline against rivals Nigeria in a two-legged playoff.

The Black Stars drew goalless with the Super Eagles in Kumasi before securing a 1-1 draw far away in Abuja to qualify on away goals. Otto Addo’s side has since been paired in a tricky Group H of the World Cup, alongside Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.

The Kirin Super Cup is expected to give Ghana a fair idea of how the Asian and South American opponents in their group play.

Meanwhile, the Ghana FA is reportedly inching closer to finalising a deal that would make Otto Addo the permanent coach of the Black Stars.

The 46-year-old is currently jostling his role as Borussia Dortmund scout and assistant trainer with that of the Ghana national team.

Addo has, however, previously indicated that he would love to continue combining both roles, but that seems untenable in the long term.

Osei Kuffour, who was a member of the Black Stars team that represented Ghana at its maiden World Cup in Germany, also disclosed how his mother had to sell the family’s television in order to purchase his football boots. “My mum stood behind me and lied to my sisters that the TV was with the repairers, but the TV was sold and I got the money to buy the boots. She saw something in me even though, at the time, football was not that big.” He said. Currently, the president of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG), Kuffour had a stellar career with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, where he won the UEFA Champions League in 2001 and a long list of trophies with the Bavarians.
