Dave ruled out of Fiji Futsal team  

Former Suva midfielder Shahil Dave has been ruled out of the Fiji Futsal team ahead of the OFC Futsal Nations Cup to be played in Auckland, New Zealand from 1-7 October.

Fiji Futsal head coach Jerry Sam confirmed that Dave has some urgent commitments and also failed to attend trials in Fiji last week.

Sam said they have quality players who will fill in the missing shoes before the team departs for Auckland next Friday.

Fiji is drawn in Group A with defending champions New Zealand, Vanuatu and Tonga.

The side will open its campaign against Tonga at 10am on 1 October before facing host nation New Zealand at 7pm on the 2nd and round off their Group match against Vanuatu at 7pm on the 3rd.

The semifinals will be played on the 5th and the final on the 7th.

Meanwhile, the winner of the tournament will qualify for the 2024 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Uzbekistan next year.
