Blues to name Pacific Cup team tomorrow

The Lautoka Football Association will name its final squad for next week's Pacific Cup in Auckland, New Zealand tomorrow.

LFA officials will meet tonight to finalise their plans for the tour and the final team will be named after proper consultation with the team management.

Blues boss Shalendra Prasad told FijiLive that preparations are going on well and coach Lambert Sarju is working on building a good team for the tournament.

"Everything about our tour will confirmed tonight and the team will be named tomorrow. We are still working on some logistical issues like player visas and all should be done by the end of business day."

"We are also yet to decide on the number of players that will fly with the team as according to the rules of the competition, we are allowed to have four guest players in our team as well."

"A lot of foreign players have shown interest in being part of our team at the Pacific Cup but the management will decide on the best ones and players that have a genuine interest to represent Lautoka."

Lautoka is grouped in Pool 1 with Ba, ASFA Australia, Nadi NZ and Labasa NZ and will play Nadi NZ in its opening match next Thursday at 8.45pm.

The 2012 Pacific Cup commences at Mt Smart Stadium next Wednesday.
