Kwasi Nyantakyi has assured Ghana will not be cheated at the U-17 level with the introduction of the MRI system.

Teams are to present the MRI films of players in order to participate in the African Cup qualifiers.

The new policy has seen some countries withdraw from the competition due to their inability to produce MRI films of their players.

There have however been concerns in the Ghana U-17 camp over the aherence of the new regulation to ensure a level playing ground.

And the Ghana FA boss who also serves on the CAF Executive Committee meeting has assured the strict enforcement of the new policy.

“No country can participate without the MRI, the position of the CAF Executive Committee is that no MRI films, no participation,”

“Teams are pulling out because of the introduction of the MRI.

“So it is not possible we have done it and we go and play a country that has not done it.”

Ghana will face South Africa in its first qualifying round for the African Cup later this month.

    Taught player would be scanned prior to age competitions by CAF. Asking for submission of scans of player by countries means they can still cheat by presenting ones from other people within the age limits as that of their players. Wise up, CAF!

    Truly there is a level playing ground. Here in my country Nigeria, our current U-17 are so young that we were scared of them been able to withstand other African countries who might want to use overage players for physical advantage. But it did not happen to be so, as our opponents Rwanda, Niger, and Guinea, whom we all trashed trashed ruthlessly were also also as young as our players in Nigeria. The MRI test is real and efficient, kudos to to CAF and FIFA for introducing MRI because the era of age cheats in African football at U-17 level is no longer possible.
