Ghana to play in Toulon tournament
LISTEN JAN 21, 2007

Certainly a busy year for Ghana football and in May the under-20 side would be away in France for the Toulon football festival.

The Black Satellites might have failed to qualify for the African Youth Championship which begins this weekend in Congo.

However, the U-20's would be flying high the nation's colours in the eight-nation competition when they make their second appearance at the tournament.

The 35th edition of the International Tournament of Toulon kicks off on May 31 and rounds up on June 9.

Ghana and Ivory Coast are the only African nations participating in the eight-nation tournament.

Ghana has been paired in Group B together with Japan, Holland and Portugal for the biggest youth football competition in Europe.

While Ivory Coast joins Germany, China and France in Group A.

The competition is expected to attract a large television audience from all over the world.
