Back from the break, Ghana doubled the lead in just five minutes through a penalty kick after Levante UD striker Emmanuel Boateng was brought down by the Japanese goalkeeper in the 18-yard box.

Japan nearly grabbed a consolation goal through Yuya in the 70th minute but his strike was fisted out by goalkeeper Richard Ofori.
 
Boateng and Partey continued tormenting the Japan defense with long range strikes but it all went wide.
