Sierra Leone Sports: U-17 boys undergo “age verification” tests

The nine players who are part of the U-17 training sessions have undergone “age-verification” using the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Test yesterday, Monday 27 August at the EcoMed Advanced Medical Diagnostic Hospital in Freetown.
It could be recalled that 26 players, in separate batches of 10, 12 and four respectively had undergone their test last week. The nine when combined with the others will amount to a total of 35 players who have been sent to undergo the test.
After the results, of all 35 players are released the coach alongside the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) will select the final list of players to represent Sierra Leone in Senegal based on age and training performance.
While awaiting the results, the team is currently training ahead of the Tanzania 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifiers, scheduled to take place on the 9th of September this year in Senegal. The team is expected to play Guinea Bissau and Senegal in their group stage encounters of the qualification.
