Vodafone Fiji national football coach Christophe Gamel will be using the Fiji Football Association Cup Tournament (Fiji FACT) to scout for potential talents for national duties.
Gamel confirmed that he would be at the ground looking at the performance of current national players and new players.
“Yes I will be at the ground to monitor the performance of our players and will also keep an eye on some potential players,”Gamel said.
The Frenchman said he would like to see a very competitive matches in the Vodafone Fiji FACT.
“I want to see teams play more possession and quality football.”
He said the national team players would march into camp after the Vodafone Fiji FACT on May 16.
“The players will march into camp on May 16 and those district players who qualify for the semi-finals and finals will be released.”
He said there would be some new faces in the squad as some players had impressed me in the Vodafone Premier League and would get them for trials.
Gamel said they would not be taking the match against New Caledonia lightly as they knew the win would increase the FIFA rankings.
“I know there have been lots of positive feedback from our New Zealand game and I will want to keep the same style of play and beat New Caledonia in both series.”
