The Vodafone Fijian football coach Christophe Gamel has named a 30-member squad to prepare to face Indonesia on September 2.

Four overseas based- players, Scott Wara, Sharma Shravan, Krith Kumar and Roy Krishna, will be joining the team as well.

Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel said Gamel has made it clear that no one’s place in the national team is fixed; everyone will need to prove themselves to be considered for the national team.

“The Fiji team will be embarking on a tour to Indonesia and the national coach with his coaching staff has named the players for the tour,” Patel said.

“As you all know Christophe Gamel has decided that he will be looking at talent and those players who have represented Fiji don’t have a cemented place in the team unless the player has reached the level that Gamel has set and maintains it.

“That is really good to see and because of that the performance of the national side is improving, doesn’t matter which district you are from, as long as you prove yourself to be in the national team.”

The players will need to prove themselves to be considered for the next friendly game against Hong Kong.

 

National squad: Laisenia Naioko (Ba), Remueru Tekiata (Ba), Saula Waqa (Ba), Manasa Nawakula (Ba), Narend Rao (Ba), Scott Wara (England), Jonetani Buksh (Labasa), Christopher Wasasala (Labasa), Kavaia Rawaqa (Lautoka), Dave Radrigai (Lautoka), Kolinio Sivoki (Lautoka), Osea Vakatalesau (Lautoka), Rupeni Rabici (Nadi), Waisake Tabucava (Nadi), Rusiate Matererega (Nadi), Sharma Shravan (New Zealand), Krith Kumar (New Zealand), Ratu Sairusi Nalewadonu (Rakiraki), Simione Tamanisau (Rewa), Josateki Tamudu (Rewa), Misaele Draunibaka (Rewa), Madhwan Goundar (Rewa), Amani Valevalavou (Rewa), Samuela Kautoga (Rewa), Iosefo Verevou (Rewa), Epeli Saukuru (Rewa), Waisake Ravuisaka (Dreketi), Setareki Hughes (Suva), Tevita Koroi (Suva), Roy Krishna (Wellington Phoenix)
