bone tests for football players !!

under 17  World Cup in Nigeria  2009 logo

This article is about bone tests for football players

Of course you are wondering, bone test for players ?! But why.
The Bone tests will be performed on soccer players at the Under-17 World Cup in Nigeria to catch teams with over-age players.

Soccer’s governing body said the MRI tests will “protect the integrity of the tournament” and serve “the spirit of fair play”.

The decision follows reports from Nigeria that the host nation intended to select older players for the Oct. 24-Nov. 15 tournament.

FIFA said MRI tests on wrist bones have been developed by its medical research center.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body.

“MRI of the wrist can identify players who are definitely above 17 years,” FIFA said in a statement. “It is reliable, evidence-based and safe for the player”.

FIFA said it encouraged the 24 teams to conduct their own tests to ensure all players comply with the age rule. Tournament regulations state players must be born on or after Jan. 1, 1992.
