WITH national soccer coach Carlos Buzzetti admitting that Fiji lacks skills at age-group level, Tagi Vonolagi has taken the first step to putting the puzzle back together.
The former national goalkeeper is organising a national skills competition to find Fiji's most skilled football player.
Fiji's last skills competition was held in 1985 where Patrick Wise was the winner.
Vonolagi said he wanted to revive the competition to help improve the basic football skills of our soccer players.
"There are definitely not much skills in the national team. As our coach earlier mentioned that we have no skills, we need to find ways to gets things done," he said.
Buzzetti earlier told Times Sport that players lack the skills during the training camp for the national under-20 and U17 teams.
Next week, Vonolagi will conduct a coaching clinic for young players under the age of 15 years in Nausori.
"The coaching clinic will involve all the aspects of soccer development for a child to be able to play good football later in life," Vonolagi said.
