Fiji U19 to play for accident victims

The Vodafone Fiji U19 football team wants to win the OFC Championship in Tahiti for victims of the fatal crash in Nabou, Sigatoka last weekend.

Head Coach Bal Sanju Reddy said the entire team was saddened to hear about the tragedy and the young Bula Boys will be playing their games for the victims and their families.

“Our deepest sympathy is with the families of the seven victims of the Nabou accident in Fiji and prayers with those fighting for their lives in the hospital. Our young Bula Boys have mentioned them in our prayers and will be playing for them in the remaining games,” he said.

Reddy said the morale in camp is quite high after their 3-1 win over Vanuatu earlier this week and the focus shifts to the next match against the Solomon Islands today.

“The preparation is going on quite well as everyone is expecting a tough encounter with both Fiji and Solomons entering the match with a win each.”

“We have left behind the first win and boys have been urged to get their focus for our next game.”

“We have identified our mistakes from the first game and working on it for improvements.”

The team has also been boosted with the arrival of the national head coach Christophe Gamel.

“We welcome our national coach Mr Gamel here in Tahiti who will also be helping us with technical aspects of the games.”

Fiji plays Solomon Islands at 1.00pm (Fiji Time) today.
