The Vodafone national football players have marched into camp at the Fiji FA Academy in Suva to prepare for the third round of the Oceania Football Confederation’s 2018 FIFA World Cup playoffs.

The national side host New Zealand in the first playoff at Churchill Park, Lautoka on March 25 while the return leg will be in New Zealand on March 28.

National football coach Christophe Gamel said this is an important camp and he is going to look at the technical aspect of the game.

“The first camp was bit okay but there are still lots of improvement needed before we play New Zealand. I want to improve on some technical areas like defence and attack. We need to improve on this and get the formation correct before playing New Zealand.”

Gamel said he would working without the Ba and Rewa players who are preparing for the OFC Champions League.

“But the players I will work with I will ensure that they learn the technical aspect of the game.”

Gamel has high hopes of the national team and is confident that come game time against the All Whites, they will be up to the challenge.

“I’m working hard and I’m optimistic that we will improve on our weak areas as well,” he added.
