The Vodafone Fijian national football team yesterday drew inspiration from the national Coca-Cola Games girls athletics champions Jasper Williams High School.

Team captain Roy Krishna drew the most cheers as he spoke on the achievements of the school on the tracks and how the national football team would try to capture the winning formula against New Zealand All Whites today at Churchill Park.

For the school, it was the first time any national side had visited them and they showed their appreciation with loud cheers as the team arrived.

Krishna told the students their school had achieved a great feat in winning the girls title for the past four years and said he had no doubt that could be achieved again this year.

“We will be playing for our country and we are aiming for a win,” he said.

He acknowledged that the effort would be a mammoth one but one that could be achieved.

He called on the support of the students for the game today.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier kicks off at 1pm at Churchill Park.
