17 years ago

The male Olympic team would wrap up their tour of France this week as they play their final test game on Wednesday.

The Black Meteors lost 2-1 in their second practice game on Tuesday to their host, SC Bastia.

The French League 2 side scored first through Serisay Barthelemy in the first half before Gary Coulibaly who came on in after recess made it two for the French side.

Attacker, Michael Helegbe pulled a goal back for Ghana after going down 2-0.

The French side drew goalless with the Black Meteors last week as Ghana started their ten-day training tour ahead of their preparations for the All-African Games qualifier against the Ivory Coast.

Wednesday’s game would be against a local division one side, C.A. Bastia.

Ghana are drawn in Zone III together with Ivory Coast and Nigeria.

However, Nigeria drew a bye and would thus meet the winner of the Ghana-Ivory Coast two-leg tie.

The Olympic team would return home on Friday to continue with their preparations at the national camp before the hosting the Ivorians on December, 17 at the Sunyani Coronation park.
