INAC Kobe will be Arsenal Ladies’ opponents for the opening match of the treble winners' Japan Charity Tour later this month.

INAC Kobe secured victory in the national Women’s Football League at the weekend, thereby confirming their place in the charity match at Tokyo’s National Stadium on November 30 (kick-off 7.15pm local time).

The Japanese champions boast seven members of the World Cup-winning national squad in their side, and are sure to offer Laura Harvey’s Arsenal side a stern test.
