Also in the footage, Morishita explained what led to him coming all the way from Japan to Ghana to join a football team.
According to him, although he was born in Japan, he was raised in the Netherlands in Europe where he started his football career before moving on to Indonesia.
"I then returned to Japan and played in the best soccer team among Japanese universities. I stayed there for four years and then travelled to Zambia as a professional footballer in the club FC Muza", he recounts.
The Japanese player left FC Muza when COVID-19 broke out and returned to his country.
When football picked up again, he decided to come back to Africa but this time, Ghana.
Meanwhile, an amazing woman who dressed casually in a long skirt and her pink shirt has displayed great and skillful tactics with the football like a professional player.
In a video that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Facebook handle of Pulse Ghana, the lady alternated the ball with different parts of her body without allowing it to ever hit the ground.
Some men who were spotted nearby kept starring at the skilful display of the woman and appeared to be in utter amazement of what was happening before their eyes.
