YOUNG Iosefo Verevou has played his way into the Fiji football team.
The 17-year-old Saraswati College student, who plays for Rewa, is in the provisional squad for friendlies against New Caledonia and Vanuatu later this year.
The tour, however, is yet to be finalised. Fiji team director Tarunesh Reddy said they were also planning an Asian tour next February.
"We're working on that," he said.
Fiji FA coaching director Carlos Buzzeti said a lot of young players had been drafted in with the view of building the Fiji U20 side for 2015.
Reddy added that some key senior players were left out because of "discipline problems".
Some notable exclusions from the team are Pita Bolaitoga, Maciu Dunadamu and Ilaitia Tuilau. Ba has nine players in the squad, Nadi six, Lautoka three, Suva four, Labasa three, Rewa three, Nadroga one and three from abroad.
Meanwhile, Joseph Elder scored the lone goal for Nadroga as they won $1500 beating Labasa 1-0 in the third/fourth place play-off.
The Nadroga side impressed in the tournament. They held Nadi 0-0 then beat Suva 2-0 to qualify for the semi-final where they only went down to Lautoka on a penalty shoot-out.
Sakeo Taganeca and Elder, who barely had any game time with Navua, stood out for the team from the Coral Coast.
Goalkeeper Taganeca, playing his first tournament at the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants, was in fine form.
He is the son of former Nadroga rep Jo Kurivitu who was goalkeeper when Nadroga won their first IDC beating Nasinu 1-0 in the 1988 final at the National Stadium in Suva.
