Western Sydney Wanderers Ghanaian youngster Kwabena Appiah-Kubi was on target for the side in their 2-2 draw in the first game against Shimizu S-Pulse in the Wander Tour 2013.
Western Sydney Wanderers twice could but could not hold onto the lead in a 2-2 draw against Shimizu S-Pulse in heavy rain at the Outsourcing Stadium Nihondaira in Shizuoka.
Tomi Juric, who moved to the Wanderers in the offseason from Adelaide United, opened the game’s scoring in the 25th minute while Kwabena Appiah, who just signed a contract extension, tapped in a rebound just before half-time after Shimizu’s goalkeeper could not hold on to an Ono shot.
Before returning to Japan next week, the Wanderers travel to China where they will face Sven-Göran Eriksson’s Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F on Sunday. The final Wander Tour match is against J-League 2 side Tokyo Verdy on Thursday September 12.
The A-League season begins for Western Sydney on October 12 at Central Coast Mariners.
