Stoke City’s Scott Wara is eager to play for Fiji. This was confirmed by Fiji Football Association chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf who however indicated that Wara would miss the upcoming tour to the Philippines.

“With mutual understanding we have agreed that he (Wara) will miss this tour to Philippines but will be made available from the next international commitment,” Yusuf said.

Meanwhile, Vodafone Fijian football head coach Christophe Gamel has chosen his 34-member extended squad to prepare for the tour.

Gamel has also called up former Wrexham and Newcastle Jets forward Leroy Jennings. Despite playing for the Fijian Under-23 team, Jennings has not committed to Fiji and could make his international debut.

Roy Krishna is also included and will be the most important player as Gamel aims to select a team to win in Philippines. However, there is no place for suspended striker Iosefo Verevou and midfielder Samuela Druru, who scored twice for Lautoka in the Oceania Champions League to secure quarter final qualification last week.

Squad: Laisenia Raura, Saula Matayalo, Samuela Nabenia, Kishan Sami, Junior Narendra Rao, Sitiveni Cavuilagi, Josaia Ratu, Waisake Ravuiwasa, Christopher Wasasala, Atonio Akuila, Kolinio Vakarauvanua, Kavaia Rawaqa, Dave Radrigai, Zibraaz Sahib, Rupeni Rabici, Napolioni Qasevakatini, Rusiate Matarerega, Ame Votoniu, Marika Rawasoi, Alvin Singh, Roy Krishna, Altaaf Mansoor, Leroy Jennings, Setareki Hughes, Epeli Saukuru, Epeli Loaniceva, Benito Manasa, Tuinai Waqavou, Remueru Tekiate, Sakaraia Naisua, Epeli Leroti, Simione Tamanisau, Shafim Buksh.
