1 month ago

The Black Starlets have safely landed in Russia for the UEFA International Development Tournament set to kick-off between 23rd and 29th April, 2024.

The team departed Ghana on Friday and arrived in Russia on Sunday.

Laryea Kingston and his boys are expected to hold their first training session on Tuesday after their recovery session on Monday.

The tournament, which features teams from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Serbia, promises to be a thrilling test for the young Ghanaian talents.

Accompanied by a contingent of twenty players, including two goalkeepers and eighteen outfield players, the Black Starlets are eager to showcase their prowess on the global stage. Led by Coach Laryea Kingston, the team is poised to make a mark and gain invaluable experience as they compete against top-tier opposition.

However, success on the pitch is not the sole focus of the Black Starlets’ journey. With the team’s development and well-being in mind, nine medical and technical staff have also made the trip to provide support and guidance to the players throughout the tournament.

This international venture comes at a crucial time for the Black Starlets as they gear up for the upcoming 2024 WAFU U17 tournament, scheduled to be held in Accra from May 15th to May 28th.

The experience gained from competing against diverse opponents in the lead-up to the WAFU tournament is expected to be invaluable in preparing the team for the challenges that lie ahead on home soil.
