With each strike he makes, Solomon Islander Benjamin Totori carries the name of his country and family.

Today he will play for Lautoka in the 2018 INKK Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament.

“I will be carrying the name of my family as I play,” he said.

“For me coming out from Solomon’s is really a big thing. We only play football in Solomon Islands

“My dad played football, my grandfather played football and I have six brothers who are all playing in the national team in Solomon Islands.”

Totori said that his major inspiration for the sport comes from his family.

 

He talks to his family each day detailing each match that transpires here in Fiji.

“I talk to them every day,” he said.

The Lautoka striker said he is prepared for their first match against Tavua at the B.O.G tournament.

“We need to focus on what we do as a team, not individually,” he said.

He first moved to Fiji in 2004 where he played for Nasinu.

Totori then moved to New Zealand and also played in Australia.

“Playing in the A-League was a major achievement for me,” he added.

His advice to all the young footballers is to continue with their love for the sport.

Lautoka has won the B.O.G twice in 1985 and 2016.
