PNG will threaten with fast football: Lal

Digicel Fiji U19 Head Coach Ronil Lal says Papua New Guinea will pose a huge threat with fast pace football at the OFC Championship in Tahiti next month.
 
Lal said they will have to fight tooth and nail to prepare a solid team ahead of their match-up against PNG.
 
"Basically our aim is to reach the semis and qualify for the World Cup."
 
We have done it once. It is not impossible, but this challenge won't be easy, but we are trying to get the best for the country."
 
"Basically we don't know about these teams. So it's only we are focusing on ourselves and how we are preparing, so after the first match against PNG-they will be tricky."
 
He also highlighted how important the two warm-up matches against New Zealand and Auckland City age group is for the young Fijian side before they Campaign against PNG.
 
"They are always a good side, a very fast side. So we have to plan for them and these two warm-up games will help us a lot for that match."
 
"As all the teams have a chance, Fiji also has a chance. It’s all depending on the preparation and what we have done."
 
"We have worked hard and what we can see is that the boys are strong and the team is strong. The bonding is there."
 
"We actually played Ba and Lautoka, both games were good. We have tried the style and adapted to that style. In the two matches, we could see the boys doing that so it was very fruitful for us," Lal said.
