Rewa football goalkeeper Benito Waqavou would always cherish the 2018 Vodafone Fiji FACT tournament.

Playing the first ever semifinal of his career, and perhaps the final on Sunday if given a chance, is the reason of him relishing these moments.

“Yes, this was my first ever semifinal and probably my first ever final if I’m chosen in the starting lineup once again this weekend,”Waqavou said.

“Certainly a moment to cherish considering my first semifinal appearance and definitely with the right set of boys.”

The Fijian Elections Office administrative assistant got his break in the Rewa district team in 2012.

He said the pressure would be immense for the title defence and meeting the expectations of the fans.

“I think not only for the fans but it will be tougher for us as we will have to play them on Sunday.

“We have been having losing our home games (in the Vodafone Premier League) but for the final, we will definitely play it  for them (our fans) and I encourage them to come out in numbers and support the boys.”

The FACT final is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm at Ratu Cakobau Park.
