To ensure parity and an equal playing grounds for football players under certain ages, a medical examination is usually required with certified reports issued by experts to confirm their ages, usually not the exact ages, but between acceptable age brackets to allow them play against teams of equal age range.
This has been the practice over time, especially for younger players, as many players are susceptible to reduce their ages so they can play for longer years.
Commonly, an MRI scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is used to carry out the "test of ages", but unfortunately as it may seem, seven (7) Black Starlets players have to be dropped by their coach, Paa Kwesi Fabin, as these players failed the MRI scan for their age category.

The seven, who were among 25 players had thier test results come out with grade six, but per the rules of the MRI test, results of Under-17 players must not exceed grade five, as grade 5 represent ages between 16 to 19, with 17 as the average, meanwhile, anything above 5 would be unacceptable.
However, it was reported today 29th November by Graphic Sports that exceptionally good players who failed the test would be recommended for the Black Satellites, while the rest would be asked to go home, as it remains the only option.
