Fiji On Radar: Farina

The Vodafone Fijian Under-20 team has out Fiji in the spotlight, says Frank Farina.

The Vodafone Fijian U20 coach made the comment at Nadi International Airport after the team took part in the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand, winning one and losing three pool matches.

“This is something Fiji should be proud of,”Farina said.

“New Zealand took 10 years to win their first U20 WC match while the Fijians did it in their first outing. It’s amazing after they beat a team from CONCACAF (North America, Central America, and the Caribbean – Football Association).

“Everyone was waiting to see Fiji being embarrassed as Tahiti was six years ago, but Fiji shocked the world. It is hard to play three games against top teams in seven days especially for the island boys.

Fiji lost 1-8 to Germany, 0-3 Uzbekistan and beat Honduras 3-0.

Farina said he will be presenting his report to Fiji FA this week before returning to Brisbane.
