Singh and Kalou ruled out of Pacific Cup

By Sunil Sharma

National and Ba defenders Alvin Singh and Manueli Kalou have been ruled out of the Pacific Cup which will be played later this month in Auckland, New Zealand.

Singh flew out to Australia today to attend trials with an Australian club while Kalou is tied up with family commitments and has difficulty in attending training sessions.

Ba manager Arvin Singh confirmed this to FijiLive today and said they will miss the services of the duo in Auckland.

"Alvin wanted to play in the Pacific Cup but his trials have come up and he had to leave today and will be attending trials from next week while Manu's wife has been transferred to Lautoka and the family has moved from Ba which is making it difficult for him to attend trainings. He has requested some time off and will surely miss the tournament."

"Despite the two not going with us, we still have a strong squad and have capable replacements. The training is going on well and the players will be given time off to spend Diwali with their families after which our final phase of training will commence," said Singh.

The 2012 Pacific Cup will be played from 21-25 November at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland.
