Fiji Prepares For Estonia

Vodafone Fiji national football team coach Christophe Gamel is doing his best to build a compatible team to take on Estonia in an international friendly match on November 19.

Despite facing lots of difficulties Gamel believes the boys will do their best against the visitors.

“I am having a lot of difficulties,”Gamel said.

Gamel said it is not good to lose some of the key players due to injuries.

“Some of the players are carrying injuries and I have to send them home.

“It is also disappointing not getting any other build up match before Estonia which we tried very hard to do,” Gamel said.

He said he had been doing his best at training to teach these players the new structure he wanted his team to use.

“We will do our best and I am confident our boys will do the best as well.”

Some of the players dropped of injuries are Epeli Leiroti of Suva, Dreketi goalkeeper Waisake Ravuiwasa, Nadroga striker Salween Singh, Lautoka utility Dave Radrigai and Rewa striker Misaele Draunibaka and Epeli Saukuru.

Lautoka midfielder Zibraaz Saheb, Nadi striker Rusiate Matarerenga and Ba’s Saula Waqa have joined the camp with Rewa’s Vuniuci Tikomaimereke while Rewa’s Ratu Tevita Warainivalu, Madhwan Goundar, Simione Tamanisau and Ba goalkeeper Misiwane Nairube are expected to join the camp this week after their leave is approved from the Fiji Police Force.

Gamel said he is also awaiting the clearance for New Zealand based former Fiji U-20 midfielder Altaaf Sahib to return to Fiji.

“Altaaf is likely to join camp this week after getting his visa things sorted out,” Gamel said.

The Vodafone Fiji national side and Estonia national side match will played at ANZ Stadium on November 19.
