Roy sets target

But the 26-year old player who signed a professional two-year contract with the Wellington Phoenix earlier this year believes he will first need to prove himself in order to be considered for the historic pre-season. #Newcastle and West Ham are heading to New Zealand to be part of the Football United tour which kicks off on July 22 with Sydney FC against Newcastle and Phoenix –West Ham a day later. On July 26 a double clash will be witnessed in Wellington as West Ham takes on Sydney FC and later Phoenix against Newcastle Utd. #Krishna visited the Vodafone Fiji Under-20 side last week which was participating in the 2014 OFC U-20 Championship played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva. #“At the moment everything is looking pretty good for me and I’m looking forward to the pre-season,” Krishna said. # “It will be a huge challenge for me and my football career if given a change against these top clubs from England. I will have to work hard and do my best in training to make the starting 11 in the two matches and that is my target at the moment,” he added. #Krishna says it will be a proud moment for him and Fiji if he is given an opportunity next month. #“It will be a historical moment and great moment for football in Fiji and hopefully that should inspire the upcoming talents hoping to excel in their career,” he concluded. #West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has assured New Zealand football fans that he will be bringing his strongest squad for the tour.#”Myself, my staff and my players are all hugely looking forward to visiting NZ,” Allardyce said.#”We will be bringing a strong first-team squad to New Zealand, will be training every day and playing two fixtures against quality opposition in Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC. #There will be less than a month to go until the start of the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season when we visit, and I am sure fans are excited about the prospect of seeing the likes of Winston Reid, Andy Carroll and Mark Noble in action alongside the exciting new signings we hope to have made by then.” #Following the off-season, the Phoenix will be preparing for the 2014/2015 A-League season. # Fiji FA MEDIA # Click here to visit the Official Fiji Football Association Facebook Page. #
