We have to abide by it.”#Reddy said Fiji FA would look into playing Solomon Islands in the next FIFA friendly internationals window from March 21-29, next year.#Meanwhile, Reddy also confirmed that Krishna’s club, Wellington Phoenix, have agreed to release the Fijian wonder boy for one of the two internationals against Vanuatu.#Reddy said Krishna was available for the second friendly international scheduled for November 11.#”Wellington Phoenix is only allowing Roy to play during the FIFA friendly international period because they have A-League commitments,” he said.#Reddy said Fiji FA would decide if it would be viable to fly Krishna from Sydney to Port Vila for one friendly international.#”It will be good to have Roy in the team,” he said.#The Vodafone national team play its opening friendly international on November 7 in Port Vila.#Fiji squad: Ilisoni Logaivau, Amani Makoe, Samuela Kautoga, Alvin Singh, JoneVesikula, Illimotama Jese, Zibraaz Sahib, Peniame Drova, Malakai Tiwa, Dave Radrigai, Taione Kerevanua, Munit Krishna, Samuela Drudru, Abu Zahid, Jale Dreloa, Kolinio Sivoki, Tevita Waranivalu, Napolioni Qasevakatini, Simione Tamanisau, Alivereti Dickson, Tevita Koroi, Antonio Tuivuna, Nickel Chand, Iosefo Verevou, Setareki Hughes, Garish Prasad, Edward Justin, Misiwani Nairube, Beniaminio Mateinaqara, Emori Ragata, Laisenia Naioko, Maciu Dunadamu, Osea Vakatalesau, Roy Krishna, and Avinesh Suwamy.#
