Vodafone Fiji Under-17 coach Kama Swamy named his 25-member squad at the Ba Football Academy last Saturday.

And the side is currently in camp preparing for the Oceania Football Confederations (OFC) qualifiers for the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Samoa on January 13.

Assistant coach Yogendra Dutt said they have more time to prepare.

“All of us need to co-operate to be able to be ready for the battle,”Dutt said.

He said players selected were among the best in the country.

“This was done with the help of the Ultimate Sports competition held here in Fiji with teams from New South Wales and Victoria, Australia.

“It gave the boys the exposure where we made two teams out of 40 players to choose the final 25,” he said.

Vodafone chief marketing officer Sanjeewa Perera said this would be a great opportunity for the young players to shine and make Fijians proud.

“We as sponsors are proud to give the much needed support to sports,” Perera said.

“Now that the squad is finalised it is time for the hard yards. We wish the Vodafone U17 team and officials the best as they prepare to battle for qualifiers to the world cup next year.”
