We have to prepare well: Serritslev

Digicel National Football Head Coach Flemming Serritslev says Fiji really needs to play two international friendlies ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in Qatar.
Serritslev said Fiji has been drawn in a tough Pool B alongside New Zealand, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea and the Fijian side will have to prepare really well.
“I have seen the pool draws and I must say that Fiji will need to put up a strong battle.”
“We haven’t played any international friendlies due to COVID-19 pandemic but I feel that there is a need for at least two friendly matches in January so that we can test our players and our team at the same time.”
“The friendly matches will also help us prepare for the big test in March. We have to get things right and as soon the players march into camp, we will get to work.”
“We have seen how New Zealand and New Caledonia play and we can’t underestimate PNG as well. It is a good challenge for Fiji also because I believe it’s a good time to step up and play international level of football.”
“Well, currently the Fiji Football Association is talking to overseas countries and we hope two friendlies are organised so that we are able to ready the boys and see their games. We want to see how the players perform against international teams so that we also see their weaknesses and strengths at the same time,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Bula Boys will march into the last camp of the year on 10th December.
