Some changes likely, says Serritslev

National head coach Flemming Serritslev says they would possibly ring in some changes to the Fiji Under 19 squad before heading to Tahiti for the OFC Championship in September.
 
Serritslev said the current 25-member final squad will march into camp on the 4th of July and their fitness and performance will be assessed.
 
He said if there are any injuries ahead of the championship, they might consider some players who missed the selection yesterday.
 
"There have been many eyes watching the under 19 players. When we publicize the squad it's still possible that the squad will be changed a bit."
 
"We don't know what will happen in a period of more than two months before the competition starts."
 
"So it's still possible that they can come into the squad and supplement us if there are any injuries also that force us to make some changes in the squad."
 
"We are actually very optimistic according to the level of our under 19. We feel we have a very good squad that will be able to compete on the highest level and there should be no doubt our goal is to qualify for the World Cup."
 
"We are very confident in the squad. It's a very good mix of our own players here from Fiji with the addition of some overseas players. So we are really confident and happy and we will try our best to go as far as possible," he said.
