Nippy Suva utility Mohammed Ramzan Khan is sharpening his finishing skills ahead of the 2022 Courts Inter District Championship which starts next Wednesday in Suva.
Khan said finishing was his let down at the Punjas Battle of the Giants tournament and in the Digicel Premier League but is confident to bounce back and regain his lost form.
"Preparation is going well. Everyone is focused on IDC and personally, for myself, my full attention and focus are on IDC."
"For myself, I am working on finishing as that is the place I have to work more on and build more combinations with all my teammates."
"My aim and our team's aim is to lift this IDC title this year. Unfortunately, I haven’t won any IDC before but I’m eager to and also determined to score goals."
The 22-year-old also made his debut for Fiji in the OFC Futsal Nations Cup where he scooped the Best Player award in the tournament.
"Futsal has given me more confidence and helped me gain my fitness level and also helped me to gain confidence in terms of playing highly competitive soccer."
"We played against some really tough players who really tested our fitness on the futsal pitch and I’m sure we will get tested by our opponents in the IDC next week."
"So it's really important to be in form because fitness will determine our gameplay also."
"We have a good pool as every team is competitive and preparing well so we won’t be taking any teams lightly. I feel our pool is equally good as the other one."
Suva is drawn in Group A with Navua, Nadi and Nadroga and begins their IDC campaign against neighbors Navua at 3pm on Wednesday before playing Nadroga at 3pm on Thursday and concludes the group stage competition against Nadi at 4pm on Friday.
