Rodu leaves selection door open

The Vodafone National Women’s Football coach Marika Rodu has left the door open for new players in the squad.

Rodu had also been hunting for players during the Vodafone Senior Women’s League playoffs last weekend.

He said the trials went according to the plan in preparation for the OFC Nations Cup Qualifiers in August.

“We are just monitoring how the girls are able to react and apply few things we have put in general to them because most of them coming unfit because the women’s football is on hold at the moment but the girls from the U18 squad have been active and that is evident on the ground,”

The former national defender said he has a very young squad with most of the U19 girls in the team.

“The whole idea is to build it for the future and looking at their performance during the Mini Games, they really performed their best and do taking up challenges,”Rodu said.

“They have been doing their best in taking all the challenge in training and growing in every game.

“We will continue do this and get in more girls if we see they are technically equipped and this is eye opening for other girls in Fiji to see they come through the same process,”Rodu added.

Rodu said he is happy to take up the challenge once again to guide the national women’s football team.

“It has been challenging to coach the women’s team and I am happy and ready to mold a best and competitive team,”Rodu said.
The OFC Nations Cup Qualifiers will be held at Churchill Park in Lautoka in August this year.
