Ghana’s U-20 National Football team, the Black Satellites, have started preparations in earnest ahead of the 2022 Toulon Tournament scheduled for May 29-12 June, 2022 in France.
Toulon tournament, reserved for a select U-20 teams in the world, makes its return this year after the 2020 and 2021 editions were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Participation in the competition is by invitation.
Fifteen years after their last participation, Ghana are back at the Maurice Revello Tournament for the 2022 edition. Placed in Group B with Indonesia, Mexico and Venezuela, the Black Satellites will be looking to improve on their seventh place finish from their last appearance at the tournament in 2007.
The tournament will serve as a redemption ground for Karim Zito’s boys, who were knocked out of the WAFU Zone B tournament as defending champions, missing out on a place in the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations and the World U-20 World Cup.
The Black Satellite’s first game is against Mexico on May 30.
