National Football Team Ready For Training Camp

The Digicel National Football team is set for the first training camp of the year at the Fiji FA Academy in Ba next week.

National head coach Flemming Serritslev said this is a continuation from the camps held last year.

“The camp is the continuation of the training camps we held last year.”

“We are coming close to making a final squad as there are not many changes while about eighty percent of the squad remains consistent from last year,” he said.

Serritslev said some of the new faces that are coming into this camp have been called for a purpose.

“Some of the new faces are coming in this camp like Alzaar Alam who is not the first- choice goalkeeper for Rewa but I want to give him a chance to prove himself because he had been the first-choice goalkeeper for all youth national teams of Fiji.”

“We have already seen some of the players last year and one of them is Isikeli Sevanaia who is not called for this camp but will still be part of the extended squad as I have already seen the talent in him.”

“We are getting Kishan Sami back into the team even though I have just seen him playing once. He was a regular player in the previous national teams and I have seen all his videos as well.”

“Also giving a break to Suva’s young striker Semi Matalau who had been trying hard since last year.”

“There’s also a comeback for Dave Radrigai. He is not nominated as a midfield, but more of a striker or the second striker,” Serritslev mentioned.

The training camp will be held from 22-26 March.
