The Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA) president Rajesh Patel, its board members and the entire football fra­ternity is saddened to learn the passing away of former national rep and Tavua leg­end Savenaca Nasara.

Tagged as the “captain with injured toe”, Nasara led his fellow Tavua team to its first Fiji FACT victory at Ratu Cakobau Park beating Suva 1-0 in the final.

Another highlight of his career was when he captained the Tavua side with an injured toe to lift the first ever Inter-District Cham­pionship title in Lautoka beating Nadi 2-0.

“It’s a huge loss. He was a great player of his time and contributed immensely when­ever he was given an opportunity to do so. A great leader and an entertaining football player. He will surely be missed by those who knew him.”
