Bula Boys depart with high hopes

The Vodafone Fiji national football team left our shores for their tour of Indonesia with high hopes last night.

Coach Christophe Gamel is confident his young squad will give its best against the Indonesian national team on Saturday.

“I need to give a break to my young players against bigger teams and I expect them to display the type of football I want from them.”

“We need to stay in the right state of mind and play possession football. We need to keep possession and create problem for the opposition by disturbing their style of football as I know Indonesia is a good team.”

 “Technically their type of play is possession oriented and when they lose the ball, they are directly aggressive and I want my players to create trouble on this,” he said.

Gamel said despite some challenges, their focus remains on mission 2026.

“This camp had been really hard as I could not get all the players.

“We want to continue with our project. Indonesia tour is one of the steps for the mission 2026.”

Meanwhile the tour of Indonesia will be a special one for Captain Roy Krishna as the Wellington  Phoenix striker turned 30 today will look to celebrate in style by giving his best and perhaps netting more international goals in Jakarta this weekend.

After playing the Indonesian national team,  Fiji will play top league club Persiga on Tuesday.
