The Vodafone Fijian football team is settling well in Indonesia as the Bula Boys had their first training session yesterday.

Making a comeback for the national duties will be Tevita Waranivalu along with six other debutants in the senior team.

The ace Rewa midfielder was first called for national u17 trials four years ago but could not make the final cut. That did not deter him as he worked hard to earn a spot in the team to the Rio Olympics last year.

He gave credit to the Almighty for his selection.

“First of all I would like to thank the Almighty for the power and His blessings for me to be selected in the national team.

“I have been out for some time but I was not discouraged.  I went back to my club to keep on training and I now I made it to the senior team,” he said.

Waranivalu said he is ready to prove his worth if given a chance on Saturday.

“We had a good training session in a new environment, everything is new for us over here

“If I get a chance to play on Saturday, I will prove to the coach and everyone back home, and make our country proud.”

Fiji FA Footballer of the year 2016 and national team member Setareki Hughes, when asked about the game this Saturday, also echoed similar sentiments.

“Our first day at training session went quite well and we’re enjoying our stay in Indonesia.

“I’m looking forward to the game on Saturday and if given a chance to play, I will surely give in my best and prove myself,” he said.
