The performance of all Fijian football players playing in the Digicel Premier League and those based overseas are going to be closely monitored.

This was confirmed to SUNsports yesterday by national football head coach Flemming Serritslev when he indicated that they are going to introduce the Hudl App to monitor the players’ performance.

The app is used worldwide where the athlete gets a public profile page to share highlights, stats and scores with recruiters, friends and family.

Now, athletes will opt-in to recruiting on Hudl, giving coaches and recruiters a better look at their skills and accomplishments as well as full game film.

Serritslev said Fiji FA would be organising a workshop with other Oceania countries on the introduction of the Hudl App.

“This is the way forward for football in Fiji because it will help in reviewing and analysing team performance,” Serritslev said.

“I’m happy to say that we will be introducing Hudl not only here but all countries in Oceania.

“We will be having the first workshop next week about Hudl so before the end of the year we will have a full knowledge about the app.

“It is a good system because we can record our training and to give players the feedback.

“We can use the app to record all the football matches here in Fiji and during the tournaments as well.

“We can actually store them in Hudl and also handout information to the district coaches.

“It will be a huge advantage when we start to use this programme.

“It helps us to improve our way of playing by reviewing our performance time and again.”

Meanwhile, Serristlev has confirmed that there is no warm-up matches arranged for the national football team as they prepare for March qualifiers of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

“Everything now depends on the borders and restrictions approval we would like to have two friendly matches in the FIFA November window.

“We have applied long time ago but until now we don’t have an answer so we can’t start before we have permission from the Ministry of Health.”

Serritslev said it is important for players to stay fit before they join camp.

“We don’t have to start from scratch when we meet for camp,” he said.

“We haven’t been training or playing for half the year so we are really missing in terms of match fitness.

“Training is one thing and playing is another so we really need matches heading into the Oceania playoffs.”
