Wara proud to play at home

England based Fiji born defender Semi Scott Wara says it was a dream come true for him when made his debut for the Vodafone national football side against the Solomon Islands national team last Wednesday in an International Friendly at ANZ Stadium in Suva.
“I always wanted to play for my country of birth and it was like a dream came true for me, Wara said.
Wara said he felt proud to don the national jumper.
“It was a great feeling to represent Fiji.
“I know there was a lot expectation from the fans here but I would say we would have done better but I am happy we manged to get a draw.”
“I played at a new position as a midfielder and that was something interesting for me because my actual position is central defender but I enjoyed playing at my new role.”
Vodafone Fiji football team coach Christophe Gamel was pleased with the performance Wara.
“I am very pleased with him,” Gamel said.
“Although he was still severely jet-lagged and playing out of his normal defensive line, he played a good game. “He was a bit lost in the beginning, but after he settled, he did well and I believe still has more possibility to express himself in the midfield.”
On debut, Wara played an authoritative role in mid-field and nearly grabbed a goal as well from a Krishna cross.
