Satellites pre-test

With three days to go for their opening group game in the Toulon Football Tournament, Ghana's team did a pre-competition test against a local French side.

The Black Satellites thrashed Six-Fours Le Brusc FC 7-2 in a test game, Monday evening with Ekow Benson and Emmanuel Clottey receiving rave reviews for their performances.

Reports indicate that Benson, who recently had trial stints with two French Lique 1sides showed immense potential while Emmanuel Clottey who top scored in the domestic league hitting the back of the net 14 times in his premiership debut displayed all the qualities of a top marksman.
