Two players from AC Milan will be taking part in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics that begin this Friday. The players both have games tomorrow as the football tournament tends to start ahead of the opening ceremony. Pierre Kalulu will be representing France as one of the U23 players while Franck Kessie will be representing Ivory Coast as one of the older players in the U23 squad.

Kessie is in Group D where he has a tough schedule facing Saudi Arabia, Germany and Brazil to make it to the next round.

Kalulu is in Group A where he will face Mexico, South Africa and hosts Japan to get to the next stage of the competition.

The group stages begin tomorrow and last until the 28th of July. If the players were to proceed to the next round, they could potentially be engaged in the tournament until the 7th of August when the finals are scheduled.

We wish the both luck as they look to secure some silverware for their respective countries.
