Former district reps united for the cause during the FANCA 2016 Muslim World Cup at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

This include former Nadi goalkeeper  Waisiki Batina, Rewa defender Rizwaan Wasim, Suva/Labasa goalkeeper Asmat Begg and Nasinu right back Mohammed Iqbal.

Batina who changed his name to Mohammed Ali Begg in 1992 enjoyed the camaraderie at the event.

“Winning is a bonus but we are here for fun and enjoyment,”Batina said.

He featured for Nadi from 1992 to 2002 and played alongside Savenaca Vunisa, Ramendra Dutt, Ponipate Naulu, Watisoni Voli, Timoci Matanitu and Maika Kasami.

Wasim is enjoying teaming with former reps.

“I’ve not missed any match,” he said.

Asmat Begg played for Suva and Labasa in 2006 – 2010.

“It’s good to be catching up with former players.”

They all thanked the FANCA for always promoting their event.

The tournament ends tomorrow.
