Vodafone Fijian national football coach Christophe Gamel says he has faith and trust in his boy’s when they take on New Zealand in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Round-OFC Stage 3 this Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
“I have faith and trust in my boys and their spirit and organization will be the key in the match against All Whites,”Gamel said.
Gamel said he trusted his players even though they would have an uphill battle against a professional New Zealand side.
He said New Zealand would field its best team that would include some European-based players.
“New Zealand comes with the best team,” said Gamel
“They will try to kill us in the first whistle and it will be a fantastic challenge. We have to resist the pressure and give them doubt.
“Our team organisation and the spirit from our boys will be crucial. I believe in my ‘Bula Boys’
“I trust these boys I am not worried about the result but I want the players to play their hearts out.”
Gamel said it would be a game between professionals and amateurs.
“I have done my part and now the onus is on the boy’s to do their best and make everyone proud.
The match kicks off at 1pm this Saturday.
Meanwhile the 20 member squad will be named tonight at FFA Academy in Ba.
