Youngsters Set For Hong Kong Tournament

Victor Fraile

The Hong Kong Soccer Sevens Tournament starts on Friday, with Sunderland's first game on Saturday morning.

Sunderland's development squad are due to fly out to Hong Kong for the start of the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens, the annual, invitational seven-a-side tournament. Kevin Ball's side have been drawn in Group B of the tournament with Chelsea, Kitchee and HKFC Captain's Select.

In last year's tournament, Sunderland reached the semi-final where they were defeated 1-0 by eventual champions Leicester City.

Each team plays the other teams in their group once, with the top two sides in each group advancing to the quarter-final stage, with the losers of the quarter-final entering the Shield stage and the 3rd and 4th placed side in the groups entering the Plate knockout stage.
