Waisake Navunigasau

By ANASILINI RATUVA

I lifted my hands and thanked God when I scored the winning goal for Suva, were the words of Waisake Navunigasau.
While waiting for the Fiji Football Association’s Board of Control to announce their decision on the Courts Inter District Championship final, Navunigasau recalled those precious moments.
“I headed in the ball and I knew it was a clear goal I was the first one to raise my hand because I knew I have scored a goal,” he said.
“That the proudest moment of my life. We have finally broken the 28 years of waiting.”  The Totoya native from Lau was adamant from Sunday night until yesterday, that his goal will bring another coveted silverware to Suva’s cabinet.
“We played as a team and I want to thank my team mates, coach and officials for everything. Without them this victory will not be possible. The trophy belongs to us and I thank our families, friends and supporters for been there for us all the time,” he added.
Navunigasau started his football career while attending Nasinu Muslim Primary School before joining MGM in Suva.
He then enrolled at the Fiji National University where he did a Diploma in Electronics. Wise as he commonly known to his friends is the second youngest child in the family of six and made his debut for Suva in 2007.
The 23-year-old likes to play at striker but last Sunday during the final he was told to play at right back.
“I also want to dedicate the win to my late brother John Lee who passed away during our Fiji FACT victory. And for me my main aim now is to secure an overseas contract.”
