ROCKHAMPTON'S Alex Trovato is preparing to mix it with some of the world's best soccer talent at the Youth Frienship Games in Sydney next month.

Trovato has gained final selection in the Queensland Country under-14 team for the annual event, which starts on July 12. A strong contingent from the United States will compete against Australia's athletes in a variety of sports.

In addition, entries from indigenous, interstate and other international teams, including New Zealand, Oceania, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan have been invited to compete.

The focus of the tournament is to encourage interaction and understanding between athletes from different cultures, encourage leadership, promote healthy and active lifestyles through participation in friendly international sporting competition.
