Digicel Fijian football captain, Roy Krishna, was expected to join the team in Doha, Qatar, last night.

Team manager Anushil Kumar told SUNsports yesterday that he had been working hard in trying to get Roy over as soon as possible.

The star striker was freed from his club commitments after his ATK Mohun Bagan side bowed out of the Indian Super League final.

Hyderabad FC qualified for their maiden Indian Super League final after 3-2 win on aggregate over ATK despite losing the second leg of the semi-final 0-1 yesterday morning.

Krishna scored in the 79th minute to give them a glimmer of hope but in the end, it was not enough as Hyderabad booked a final date with Kerala Blasters.

Kumar said Fijian football head coach, Flemming Serristslev, is going to release his line-up on match day.

Roy is expected to partner Sairusi Nalauabu upfront when they take on New Caledonia in their opening match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar’s Oceania qualifiers on Saturday at 5am (Fiji time).

Other definite starters are Setareki Hughes, Akuila Mateisuva, Inoke Turagalailai and so on.
